Several Varieties of Sargento Cheese Recalled Due to Possible Contamination

Family Assistance Program

Several varieties of Sargento brand cheeses have been recalled due to the possible contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. The recall was prompted by a recall announced by a Sargento Foods Inc. supplier who is based in Middlebury, IN. The company notified Sargento Foods Inc, that the Longhorn Coby cheese supplied to them must be recalled due to the possible contamination. To date, no illnesses have been reported.

The recalled product was packaged at the Plymouth, Wisconsin facility. No other products are affected by the recall. The list below shows the products that are part of the recall. “Our valued consumers have been contacting us with their questions and concerns,” Sargento officials said.  “We will continue to respond to our consumers and activate reimbursements.”

Please call 1-800-CHEESES (1-800-243-3737) or email us via the “Contact Us” page on Sargento.com.  Phone calls will be answered from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Central Time); emails should get a response within 24 hours.

The recalled retail products include:
