The Wisconsin Cheeseman recalls cheese logs and cheese balls sold through Indiana catalog sales

The Indiana State Department of Health announced today that the company The Wisconsin Cheeseman has recalled cheese log and cheese ball products as part of the Parkers Farm, Inc. voluntary recall. The initial recall from Parkers Farm, Inc. began on January 15, 2010.

The cheese balls and cheese logs involved in the recall were available through catalog order to consumers across the nation, including those in Indiana.

The voluntary recall began due to the possibility of contamination with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria, which can cause a serious infection in people with a weakened immune system, including young children and the elderly.

The Wisconsin Cheeseman is the distributor of the nine recalled cheese log and cheese ball products that they directly purchase from Parkers Farm, Inc.

The following is a list of products involved in the recall from The Wisconsin Cheeseman provided by the Indiana State Department of Health:

  • Gift #11: Sausage ‘N Cheese Logs
  • Gift #87: Cheese Logs & Cutting Board
  • Gift #325: Smorgasbord
  • Gift #365: Cheese Log Trio

  • Gift #441: Cheese Ball Trio
  • Gift #509: Cheese Logs
  • Gift #751: Snacker Pack, and
  • Gift #876: Cheese Balls & Sausage

Indiana consumers who have purchased any of the above products can return them to The Wisconsin Cheeseman for a full refund or replacement.

No illnesses have been reported, but consumers are encouraged to watch for signs of Listeria monocytogenes infection, which include fever, severe headaches, abdominal discomfort, including pain, diarrhea and nausea, and stiffness.
