Three more brands of cheeses — all produced by Deutsch Kase Haus LLC — are being recalled because of possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

Yoke’s Fresh Market and Lipari Foods LLC posted the recalls Tuesday with the Food and Drug Administration, both naming the Middlebury, IN, cheese maker.

The Yoke’s branded recalled cheeses were sold in Yoke’s stores in Idaho and Washington.

Lipari recalled its Old Tyme and Copperwood branded cheeses from foodservice operations and retailers in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

Although no illnesses have been reported in relation to the Yoke’s or Lipari cheeses, the Tennessee Department of Agriculture did find Listeria monocytogenes in finished cheese produced by Deutsch Kase Haus in early February.

Officials are concerned that people may still have the recalled cheese in their homes. There is also concern that people who have already consumed the recalled cheese could develop Listeria infections because it can take up to 70 days after exposure for symptoms to appear.

Anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products and developed symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical attention and tell their doctors about the possible exposure to the pathogen. Those who have eaten the recalled products should monitor themselves for symptoms for the next two months.

Symptoms include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. Invasive cases see the infection spread beyond the gastrointestinal tract.

In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections occur in older adults, children and people with weakened immune systems.

The Yoke’s recall includes two flavors of cheese available for sale from Sept. 1, 2016, through Jan. 27 this year. Consumers can identify the recalled Yoke’s brand cheese by checking for the following label information:

  • Colby Jk Longhorn Cheese – Yoke’s Fresh Market 16 oz.
  • Colby Longhorn Cheese – Yoke’s Fresh Market 16 oz.

Related recalls
Hundreds of cheeses and other products containing cheese made by Deutsch Kase Haus LLC have been recalled in recent weeks.

Cheese brands involved include Sargento, Sara Lee, Saputo, Dutch Valley and Guggisberg, as well as a variety of store-branded products sold by Meijer, Albertsons, H-E-B and other retailers.

The recalls, which began Feb. 10, stem from a random test conducted by Tennessee inspectors on samples of Amish Classics cheese collected from a retailer and produced by Deutsch Kase Haus LLC of Middleburg, IN. The cheese tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes and Tennessee officials posted a consumer alert.

The Food and Drug Administration is investigating the situation along with officials in several states. However, a clause in the federal code prevents FDA from releasing information about what companies bought cheese from Deutsch Kase Haus because such details are considered “confidential corporate information.”
