ShopRite has recalled all sizes and date codes of Global Cheese Market brand Stilton Cheese due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
No illnesses have been reported, and there is no indication of where the cheese was produced.
Last month, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency alerted Canadian consumers to a recall of Cropwell Bishop Creamery Finest Blue Stilton Cheese, manufactured in the United Kingdom. That recall, also, was due to contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
Our email inquiry to Cropwell Bishop Creamery went unanswered. But the United Kingdom notified other countries in the European Union of a batch of blue Stilton cheese that was contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes at a level of 100 per gram.
Customers of ShopRite who purchased Global Cheese Market brand Stilton Cheese should return it to the store for a refund.
