MDS further expands cheese recall

After two previous voluntary recalls of specific cheese products, MDS is again expanding the recall to include all products produced on the affected production line by a third-party supplier because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to a Department of Defense All Food and Drug Activity message sent Feb. 21.

The Defense Commissary Agency has publicized this recall to all its stores, said Christopher Wicker, a public health advisor for DeCA headquarters at Fort Lee, Virginia. Whenever a commissary has a recalled or withdrawn product in its inventory, the product is immediately removed from store shelves.

The following products, with a "product code" date from Feb. 28 through Aug. 14, 2017 have been contaminated:
