A type of cheese sold in Kentucky and Tennessee is being recalled.
Torres Hillsdale Country Cheese LLC is recalling Asadero and Oaxaca soft Mexican-style cheeses due to possible listeria contamination. Eating food contaminated with listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a potentially fatal disease. The company says no illnesses have been reported.
The products were distributed to retailers and delis in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
The recalled cheeses were sold in 10-pound balls and 16- and 12-ounce plastic packages under the name "Aguas Calientes" and in 6-pound blocks shrink-wrapped in clear plastic under the name "El Jaliciense." For more information, consumers can call 517-368-5990.
