What’s the Problem?

Jan. 3, 2019 – Limena, LLC, a Palm Springs, Florida-based establishment, is recalling 1 lb. (16 oz.) blocks of Salvadorean String Cheese, also known as Quesillo Cheese, for potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, according to an FDA recall notice issued Thursday [1].

The recalled string cheese comes in a clear plastic vacuum package marked with a blue and white label, FDA said. Lot #1041020 is printed on the top. Affected products were distributed to retail stores and through mail orders.

The problem was discovered after routine testing by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services revealed the presence of Listeria in one sample of Salvadorean String Cheese (Quesillo Cheese). Production of the cheese has been suspended while the FDA and manufacturer work to identify the source of contamination.

Consumers who purchased the recalled string cheese are urged to discard it. If you have any additional questions about this recall, you should contact Limena, LLC.

To date, no listeria infections or other illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall, FDA said.
