According to a press release from MDS Foods, the cheeses could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, which can cause serious and fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people or others with weakened immune systems.

Customers who purchased any of the cheese products from the affected sell by dates or any unreadable date code are urged not to eat the cheese and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Anyone with questions can call 330-879-9780 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
