Lakeview Cheese and Bashas’ Family of Stores Issue Voluntary Cheese Recall

For Immediate Release

February 24, 2017





Greg Gaglio, President/CEO, Lakeview Cheese Company

Ashley Shick, Director of Communications & Public Affairs, Bashas’ Family of Stores



Out of an abundance of caution and with an emphasis on customers’ wellness and safety, Lakeview Cheese and Bashas’ Family of Stores are proactively recalling various types of Colby cheese due to a potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. It’s important to note that no illnesses have been reported to date.
The affected products were manufactured by Guggisberg Cheese, Inc. and by Deutsch Kase Haus, LLC of Middlebury, Indiana. The affected products were distributed by Las Vegas-based Lakeview Cheese to Bashas’ Family of Stores, and sold in Bashas’ and Food City supermarkets’ Arizona meat departments under the grocery brands’ private label.
The recall consists of nine Colby cheese products, including fixed-weight and bulk- cut, random-weight items. The products being voluntarily recalled are:

Food City Colby Longhorn Cheese

12 oz.

Food City Colby Jack Cheese

12 oz.

Food City Colby Monterey Cheese

12 oz.

Random Weight Longhorn Colby Cheese

Random Weight Cut Co-Jack Cheese

Random Weight Cut Monterey Jack Cheese

Random Weight Cut Pepper Jack Cheese

Random Weight Colby Quarter Longhorn

Random Weight Colby Horn

Bashas’ and Food City customers who have purchased these products between September 1, 2016 and February 21, 2017 can return them for a full refund. Customers with questions can call Bashas’ Family of Stores’ Customer Service Department at 480-883-6131.
