Cambrooke Foods, LLC, of Framingham, MA, has recalled all batches of its Low Protein Imitation Cream Cheese (“Cheddar Wizard,” “Herb & Garlic,” and “Plain” flavors) due to possible listeria contamination.
Listeria was detected during routine testing before shipment in batches of Imitation Cream Cheese at the company’s Randolph, MA facility. These batches of Imitation Cream Cheese products were destroyed and never shipped to customers.
No illnesses have yet been reported for any batch of Imitation Cream Cheese.
Cambrooke Foods® is also conducting a market withdrawal of all batches of its Low Protein Peanot Butter™ because it is produced using the same machinery used to produce the Imitation Cream Cheese products. Testing has not confirmed Listeria contamination in any batch of Low Protein Peanot Butter™ nor have any adverse events been reported as a result of its consumption. No other Cambrooke Foods® product is produced using this machinery.
These products are sold to customers with special dietary needs. Theseproducts are distributed directly to consumers and to a limited number of distributors in the U.S. and Canada.
The company has ceased the production and distribution of these products. Cambrooke Foods® is working directly with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to investigate the cause of the contamination.
