Cheese products recalled for possible Salmonella contamination

Posted: Updated:

A recall is been issued for certain types of 4C Grated Cheese and Cento Grated Cheese, due to possible salmonella contamination.

4C Foods Corp. says the recall is affecting grated cheese products distributed nationwide and packed in 6 oz. vacuum-sealed glass jars, with BEST BY dates between November 12, 2016 and November 12, 2018.

The following products are affected:

  • 4C All Natural Parmesan Grated Cheese (UPC 41387-33126) 
  • 4C All Natural Parmesan/Romano Grated Cheese (UPC 41387-37126) 
  • 4C All Natural 100% Imported Italian Pecorino Romano Cheese (UPC 41387-77126)

  • Cento Parmesan Grated Cheese (UPC 70796-90502) 
  • Cento Romano Grated Cheese (UPC 70796-90501)

No illnesses have been reported according to the company, but the recall was being issued as a precaution.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses.

Customers can return the affected products to the place of purchase for a full refund. Grocery stores and distributors are immediately removing and throwing out the items from store shelves and warehouses.

If you have any questions, contact 4C Foods Corp. at 866-969-1920 Monday-Friday, 9:30am to 4:30pm ET.
