Sargento expands recall

The FDA announced a recall of certain Sargento cheese products last week, and now other recalls have been declared because of the possibility of containing the listeria-tainted cheese.

Sargento has added more of their cheese products to the recall, and has also dropped their supplier.

Country Fresh, LLC. of Conroe, Texas, is recalling 2,552 cases of various cooking and snacking products that contained Sargento branded cheeses because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The products were shipped to various retailers in the south, including in Mississippi, under the Country Fresh and store brand labels below:
