If you have cheese in your fridge right now, you’re probably going to want to check this out.

Meijer, Sara Lee, and Sargento have all issued recalls on some of their cheeses due to listeria contamination fears.

Meijer issued a voluntary recall on February 10, recalling Meijer Colby and Colby Jack Bulk Cheeses. Meijer was notified by the manufacturers of the cheese, Deutsch Kase Haus, that they may have been contaminated with Listeria.

The affected Meijer products are those with UPCs 215927xxxxxx or 215938xxxxxx – the last 6 digits will vary, and are determined by weight. The cheeses would have been purchased from the Meijer deli counter.

Sargento and Sara Lee’s recalls stem from their cheeses being manufactured in the same Deutsch Kase Haus facility.

The recalled Sargento products are 6.84-ounce packages of Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Longhorn Colby (sell-by dates of April 12 and May 10, 2017), and 8-ounce packages of Sargento Chef Blends Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheese (sell-by dates of June 14 and July 12, 2017).

Sara Lee is recalling their Monterey Jack with Jalapeno Peppers with a use by date of June 12, 2017, item number 40205, product lot #A319349610. They are also recalling Sara Lee sliced Colby Jack cheese that has a use by date of June 11, 2017, item number 40208, product lot #A319348610.
