It's time to check your refrigerator if you have Sargento cheese products because the company has issued a recall over several different types of cheese products over a listeria concern. Reported by KDVR, the brand based in Wisconsin issued the recall after a supplier in Indiana alerted Sargento Foods, Inc. that the Longhorn Colby cheese might be contaminated with Listeria monocyctogenes.
While there are no illnesses or hospitalizations reported, Sargento issued the recall "out of abundance of caution, via KDVR. Sargento is recalling "6.84-ounce packages of Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Longhorn Colby with sell-by dates of April 12 and May 10." Additionally, they're recalling "8-ounce packages of Sargento Chef Blends Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheese with sell-by dates of June 14 and July 12, 2017."
