Cheeses recalled for <em>E. coli</em> in New Zealand

Waimata Cheese Company Limited has recalled a batch of its camembert and brie cheese due to the possible presence of E. coli.

"The concern with these cheeses is that there may be E. coli bacteria present," said Jenny Bishop, New Zealand Food Safety's acting deputy director general.

E. coli was discovered during routine testing; New Zealand Food Safety has not received any notification of associated illness.

"As is our usual practice, New Zealand Food Safety will be working with Waimata Cheese Company Limited to understand how the contamination occurred and prevent its recurrence," Bishop said.

The recalled products are being removed from shelves at stores in New Zealand. Product details and photographs are available on New Zealand Food Safety's recall page.
