Sargento Adds to Recall List After Contamination Concerns

The company first announced the recall from its supplier Deutsch Kase Haus on February 10 because of possible Listeria contamination.

While there have been no confirmed illnesses linked to the recalls, Sargento said that "out of an abundance of caution" it would recall seven additional products packaged on the same lines as the cheese recalled on February 10. And noted: "Out of concern for the health and well-being of Sargento consumers, the company has also terminated its relationship with Deutsch Kase Haus, which supplied Sargento with the affected Longhorn Colby cheese".

This ripple effect is something that manufacturers should pay close attention to.

According to a press release from MDS Foods, the cheeses could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, which can cause serious and fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people or others with weakened immune systems.

While the suppliers caught in the middle of an ingredient recall aren't impacted as strongly as the food companies with the contaminated products, they will likely face some backlash from consumers and enhanced scrutiny going forward. "We will continue to evaluate our processes to ensure we remain a leader in food safety and quality". This might include random checks, increased safety procedures, or an entire supply chain overhaul.
