Maytag Dairy Farms voluntary recall (as of 3-2-16)

Maytag Dairy Farms Voluntarily Recalls Blue Cheese Products Due to Possible Health Risk

Maytag Dairy Farms has issued a voluntary recall of it raw milk blue cheese due to the potential for Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Routine product testing has indicated the presence of Listeria monocytogenes and further tests are being done to determine if harmful pathogens were also present. As a precaution Maytag Dairy Farms has voluntarily recalled the product. To date there have been no reported illnesses in conjunction with this voluntary recall.

The potential for contamination was discovered after testing by the State of Iowa revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in two lots of product. Maytag Dairy Farms has voluntarily suspended production and distribution while the company collaborates with FDA and the State of Iowa to determine the cause of the problem.

IMPORTANT: We have learned that product sold at Outpost has been indicated in the recall. Each blue cheese wheel was divided and repackaged by Outpost into individually wrapped wedges.

If you have purchased Maytag Blue Cheese from Outpost from 1/26/16 through 2/29/16 please return them to any Outpost location for a full refund.
