What’s the problem?
September 7, 2010 – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers to discard cheeses from Estrella Family Creamery of Montesano, Wash., because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Environmental samples and one product sample collected by the FDA during an August 2010 inspection at the facility have tested positive for L. mono.
This advisory affects all lots of Estrella Family Creamery cheeses, including cheeses identified as soft, semi-soft, semi-hard and hard. Estrella cheeses are sold at specialty cheese shops, farmers markets, the company’s farm store in Montesano, Wash., and on the Internet. The company also sells to restaurants and takes part in cheese contests where its products are sold.
