Cheese Sold In Calif. Recalled Due To Contamination Concerns

WESTBY, Wis. (AP) — Bekkum Family Farms LLC of Westby, Wis., is recalling shredded cheese due to a possible bacterial contamination.

The state agriculture department said Wednesday the cheese is labeled “Grumpy Goat Shreds” under the Nordic Creamery brand name.

The product is sold in eight-ounce bags with a code date of 10-MAR-12. It was sold in stores in California, Minnesota and Wisconsin beginning Nov. 11. Consumers who bought the cheese should throw it away or return it to the store for a refund.

A processor informed Bekkum that its cheese was shredded on the same equipment as other cheese that has since tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. Company spokesman Al Bekkum says the Bekkum product hasn’t tested positive for Listeria, but the recall is being conducted out of an abundance of caution.
