Stay clear of contaminated cheese

A number of French white mould cheeses are being pulled from supermarket shelves across Australia due to potential microbial Listeria contamination.

Washed Rind Pty Ltd has issues a recall of its St Simeon, Le Coulommiers, Coulommiers Truffe and Brie de Nangis cheese with best before dates ranging from 18 Feb–17 May 2019. They have been available for sale in delis, cheeserooms, restaurants, IGAs and independent stores in NSW, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

Products should not be consumed and can be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Listeria can be dangerous for pregnant women and their unborn babies, the elderly and people with low immune systems. Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) encourages any consumers concerned about their health to seek medical advice.

Washed Rind conducted a similar recall of its French cheeses in Australia in March 2018 over Listeria concerns.
