More cheese connected to Indiana plant recalled for possible Listeria


MIDDLEBURY, Ind. (WTHR) - Another company has issued a recall for cheese possibly contaminated with Listeria from an Indiana plant.

Saputo has voluntarily recalled two brands of Gouda cheese supplied by Deutsch Kase Haus of Middlebury in northern Indiana. The affected products are Great Midwest brand Applewood Smoked Gouda, both in random weight packaging of about six pounds with a sell by date of May 22, 2017 and random weight slices or chunks cut at stores with any date code on the package.

Also recalled is Dutchmark Pasteurized Processed Smoked Gouda sold in random weights of about two pounds. The "best when used by" date on the Dutchmark product is November 18, 2017.

Last week, cheese sold by Sargento and Meijer that had been processed by Deutch Kase Haus was also recalled.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, normally affecting children, frail or elderly people, those with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women.

No illnesses have been reported from the Gouda recall, which was sold to retailers nationwide. Consumers are instructed to not consume the affected cheese and instead return the product or throw it away.

If you have questions, contact Saputo at 1-877-578-1510 between 9 am and 9 pm EST, Monday - Friday.
