Check your fridge if you enjoy the fine cheese from Sargento. It could try to kill you. Bad Cheese! Bad Cheese!

PRNewswire is reporting that Sargento Foods Inc has recalled a specialty Longhorn Colby Cheese after the company discovered a potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. At this time, no illnesses have been reported.

The cheese you need to look out for are  Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Longhorn Colby - 6.84 oz.  UPC 4610000228, with "Sell By" dates of "12APR17B" and "10MAY17B".  Also Sargento Chef Blends Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheese - 8 oz.  UPC 4610040041,  "Sell By" dates of "H14JUN17" and "H12JUL17."

The products came from the Sargento faciltiy in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Which is odd, since you would think that people from Wisconsin would know how to handle cheese.

To be extra careful and cautious, Sargento is also recalling the following products since they were packaged on the same line as the "bad" cheese.
