Cheddar cheese recalled because it might be contaminated with E.coli

Patriot-News - 2/20/2024

Raw Farm is recalling their cheddar cheese product due to the possibility of E.Coli.

On Feb. 15, the company was contacted by the FDA and the CDC regarding the possibility that Raw Farm’s raw cheddar cheese might have caused illnesses between Oct. 18, 2023, and Jan. 31, 2024, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

During this time frame, there were ten fecal samples collected from patients in 4 states that appeared to match one another. Some of these patients didn’t report consuming any Raw Farm cheddar cheese or other raw diary products.

As a result, Raw Farm is in full cooperation and collaboration with the CDC and FDA, and are voluntarily recalling the following date codes of Raw Cheddar Cheese:

Only products on the retail shelf, which should have a date code of 20231113-1 or older should be recalled. Shredded cheese with a date code of 20240116 or older should also be recalled.

If you have any of these Raw Cheddar Cheese date codes, do not consume them. Instead, return it for credit.

No product samples consumed by consumers or products available for sale have yet tested positive for E.Coli. This recall is in an abundance of caution strictly based on submitted fecal samples.

This recall is voluntary and doesn’t affect any other products other than raw cheese with these specific date codes.
