This comes after cheese samples were found to contain traces of Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus.  The samples were collected in California on June 30, but the Missouri-based cheese company has been asked to stop production and distribution while further tests are carried out.

Morningland Dairy produces raw milk Cheddar and Colby cheeses and raw milk goat Cheddar & Colby cheeses.  The halt is considered temporary while the Food and Agriculture Department looks into the matter further.
