KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSNT) — Many cheese products are being recalled due to the potential of listeria contamination, according to the FDA.

Paris Brothers Inc. in Kansas City on Thursday issued a voluntary limited recall of the following items:

  • Cottonwood River Cheddar
  • D’amir Brie Double Crème French Brie
  • Milton Prairie Breeze White Cheddar Style
  • Milton Tomato Garlic Cheddar
  • Paris Brothers Mild Cheddar
  • Paris Brothers Colby Jack
  • Paris Brothers Pepper Jack
  • Cervasi Pecorino Romano

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in those who are young, frail, elderly or have weakened immune systems. Symptoms in healthy individuals can include short-term issues like high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths for those who are pregnant.

These products have been sold to wholesalers for distributions in Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Oklahoma, Nebraska, South Dakota, one store in Mississippi and one store in Florida. The recalled cheeses were produced between May 4 and May 6. Shipping cartons of the affected products will have lot codes of 05042022, 05052022 or 05062022.

The listeria monocytogenes were found due to a routine sampling by the FDA. No illness has been reported yet. A Checkers store in Lawrence, as well as many other Kansas stories, sold the recalled cheese. The list of grocery stores that sold the impacted products can be viewed by clicking here.

Consumers who have purchased the impacted cheese are encouraged to return it for a full refund. Questions can be directed to the company. Ask for the FDA contact, Doug Schell, at 816-455-4188 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
