Miller’s Cheese is voluntarily recalling a number of shredded cheese products due to possible cross-contamination with another brand’s cheese that was contaminated with listeria. None of the Miller’s cheese has tested positive, so this recall is out of an abundance of caution.
The products affected by the voluntary recall are limited to the following Miller’s shredded products:
- All 8 oz and 16 oz. bags of Miller’s shredded cheese (Pizza, Mozzarella, Cheddar, Fancy, Muenster), with an expiration of June 5,2012 through Sept 4, 2012
- All 32 oz bags of Miller’s shredded Mozzarella with an expiration date of February 6, 2012 through May 7, 2012
- All 5 lb bags of Miller’s shredded Mozzarella, Cheddar, Muenster and Monterey Jack with a pack date of September 8, 2011 through Dec 7, 2011
Here’s the Millers Cheese Recall press release for more information.
Update: HaOlam Shredded Cheese is also involved in this recall. Here is more information. (Thanks to the many readers that let me know.)
Unfortunately it doesn’t seem that Miller’s is offering any kind of compensation for those affected. If you’ve got cheeses from these dates, your best course of action is to toss it.
A little color commentary from me – I think from a PR-perspective, Miller’s should at least be offering some free product coupons to those who have been affected by the recall. If you happen to have some of these products, you might want to contact them and let them know this!
