Cheese Recall at Minnesota Stores Prompted by Possible Health Risk
Don't forget to check the cheese in your fridge when you get home today! There's a big recall of cheese from popular grocery stores in Minnesota and around the country. Many different brands and stores have been affected by this recall made by a cheese producer called Old Europe Cheese, Inc. The types of cheese being recalled are brie and camembert cheeses.
According to the CDC, this voluntary recall is because of possible listeria contamination. So far, 6 people have been affected, and 5 of them had to be hospitalized. No one in Minnesota has reported getting sick, but you should still toss the cheese if you have any of it because these are some big brands that have been affected.
Some of the names that immediately jumped out to me that are being recalled are Fresh Thyme brand, Good and Gather (the Target brand), and Trader Joe's Brand. Here are more specifics for the products being recalled for those three brands:
8 oz. Brie - double creme, rounds
8 oz. Brie - triple creme, rounds
8 oz. Brie - wedges, saran wrapped
8 oz. Camembert - traditional rounds
Good and Gather:
8 oz. Good and Gather Double Cream Brie
8 oz. Trader Joe Slicing Brie Cheese
The FDA writes the "products were distributed from August 01, 2022 through September 28, 2022" and "are marked with Best By Dates ranging from September 28, 2022 to December 14, 2022".
