The World Cheese Company, producer of Haolam and Miller’s kosher cheese products, issued a voluntary recall of some shredded cheese packaged in a Wisconsin plant.
The plant that was the subject of the voluntary recall is only a packaging facility, and the cheese involved was a different brand of cheese that was brought into the plant with the listeria. As noted, all of the Haolam shredded cheese tested, was found to be negative for the Listeria monocytogenes.
Although the test results for all of the Miller’s shredded cheese distributed in the market place tested negative for Listeria monocytogenes, the State of Wisconsin has requested a voluntary recall of all the products that were shredded in that plant from the time the listeria was found in another brand of cheese also packed in this plant.
The products affected by the voluntary recall are limited to the following Haolam shredded products:
– All 8 oz and 16 oz. bags of Haolam shredded cheese (Pizza, Mozzarella, Cheddar, Fancy, Muenster, R/F Muenster, R/F Cheddar), with an expiration of June 5,2012 through Sept 4, 2012
– All 32 oz bags of Haolam shredded Mozzarella and Gourmet Blend with an expiration date of February 6, 2012 through May 7, 2012
– All 5 lb bags of Haolam shredded Mozzarella, Cheddar and Muenster with a pack date of September 8, 2011 through Dec 7, 2011
Rest assured that our Customer Service Reps at Prime Source have contacted each distributor and made appropriate substitutes for those Facilities affected.
