- Warrensburg, New York-based Oscar's Smokehouse Inc., is recalling 11 of its seven ounce cheese spreads marked with three digit lot numbers ranging from 719-959, as they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
- The recalled products were distributed nationwide through mail order sales, wholesale sales, and one retail store between March 2013, and March of this year.
- No illnesses have yet been reported in connection to this recall.
The Oscar's Smokehouse cheese spreads come in a seven ounce, clear plastic container marked with lot numbers 719-959 on the bottom of the container or on the cheese spread label itself.
The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in 15 products, which included the 5.5 pound package of Cheese Spread Base produced by Parker's Farm Acquisition, LLC that was used to further manufacture the above mentioned Oscar’s Smokehouse Cheese Spreads. As reported here, Parker Farms issued its own recall earlier.
