(INDIANAPOLIS) - A third round of cheeses have been recalled due to concerns of possible Listeria contamination.

Biery Cheese Co. is voluntarily recalling its specialty Longhorn Colby cheese after its supplier, Deutsch Kase Haus, LLC, notified them of contamination concern on Feb. 15.

Earlier this month, Sargento and Meijer announced recalls of cheeses that were also distributed by the Middlebury, Indiana supplier. Sargento then expanded its recall to include more products a week later and cut ties with the distribution company.

The recent recall from Biery Cheese Co. includes the following products:

  • Delallo Premium Sliced Colby Cheese, 8oz, UPC Code 0 72368 12452 0, sale by date of May/6/2017
  • Delallo Premium Sliced Hot Pepper Cheese, 8 oz, UPC Code 0 72368 12462 9, sale by date May/6/2017
  • Dietz & Watson Pasteurized Process New York State Cheddar Cheese with Jalapeno and Cayenne, 8 oz, UPC Code 0 31506 79412 4, sale by May/6/2017
  • Dietz & Watson Pepper Jack Cheese, 8 oz., UPC Code 0 31506 79450 6, sale by May/6/2017
  • Private Selections Hardwood Smoked Gouda Slice, 8 oz., UPC Code 0 11110 60861 1, sale by 05/06/17

According to the FDA, the products were distributed between November 11, 2016 and January 4, 2017. They were packaged in Louisville, OH and distributed to distribution centers in Georgia, Indiana and Pennsylvania.

Customers who have purchased any of these products from the affected sell by dates or any unreadable date codes are urged not to consume it and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may experience short-term symptoms like high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. A Listeria monocytogenes infection could lead to miscarriages and stillbirths for pregnant women.

No illnesses have been reported due to these cheeses at this time.
