If you purchase Sargento cheese, definitely do some refrigerator and/or freezer diving.
The Wisconsin-based cheesemaker is recalling a couple of their types of cheeses because of possible bacterial contamination (listeria monocyctogenes, to be exact). These were all packaged at the Sargento plant in Plymouth, Wisconsin: and distributed nationwide.
Here’s what you need to look for:
- Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Longhorn Colby (6.84-ounce packages with sell-by dates of 4/12/17 and 5/10/17)
- Sargento Chef Blends Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheese (8-ounce packages with sell-by dates of 6/12/17 and 7/12/17)
Luckily, no illnesses have been reported yet.
