Last week we told you about Kraft’s recall of select American Singles, a precaution the company took after learning that an ingredient was improperly stored. This week, another recall has made news, this time from 4C Foods. The company voluntarily recalled 3,500 jars of their 6 ounce grated Parmesan after the FDA found potential salmonella contaminates during routine testing. No illnesses have been reported yet.
As Consumerist reports, the affected products are marked with “Best by” dates of July 21st and 22nd, 2016, and were distributed in Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. They also list symptoms of salmonella, saying that “While no illnesses have been reported involving the cheese, salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries especially in young children, elderly people, and otherwise with weakened immune systems.”
If you think that you may have a recalled jar of the grated parmesan, the FDA urges that consumers throw out both the cheese and the container, and contact 4C Foods for a replacement or full refund.
