Maytag Dairy Farms Voluntarily Recalls Blue Cheese Products
Maytag Dairy Farms
Looks like there might be something funky about this blue cheese, and it isn’t the smell. Maytag Dairy Farms has issued a voluntary recall of several of its blue cheese products after testing conducted by the state of Iowa revealed the presence of listeria monocytogenes in two lots, according to the FDA.
The recall includes five lots of ‘Maytag Blue’ blue cheese wedges and wheels and 15 batches of blue cheese crumbles. The lot and batch numbers of the recalled products can be found on the FDA website. The products were distributed from December 11, 2015 to February 11, 2016 through retail stores, restaurants, and direct mail orders nationwide. No illnesses relating to the cheese have been reported.
Maytag Dairy Farms has suspended production and distribution as it works with the FDA and the state of Iowa to determine the cause of contamination. Consumers are asked to discard the products and contact Maytag for a full refund.
