January 3, 2012: Haolam and Miller’s Recalls Shredded Cheese

Haolam and Miller’s Recalls Shredded Cheese – On December 29, 2011, World Cheese Company (Haolam) and Miller’s Cheese Corporation (Miller) recalled various types of shredded cheese that were packaged in a facility where another brand of cheese tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.  

The cheese that tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes is Green Cedar Dairy’s All Natural Ackawi and Chive Cheeses from Michigan.  So far, there have been two reported illnesses from the contaminated cheeses.

The following is an excerpt from the Miller press release.  The exact product recall information was stated in  the Haolam press release (http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/General+News/113479/Haolam-%26-Millers-Issue-Recall-On-Shredded-Cheese.html), with the exception that the product was labeled with the Haolam brand name:
