Four big states — New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida and Alabama—have been added to the recall of Torres Hillsdale Country Cheese’s Asadero and Oaxaca soft Mexican-style cheeses.
The recall was expanded to the four states after initially covering Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin.
The recalled cheeses were distributed in 10-pound balls and 16- and 12-ounce plastic packages, sold under the name "Aguas Calientes," and in 6-pound blocks shrink-wrapped in clear plastic under the name "El Jaliciense."
The recall, which we originally reported here, is due to concern the cheeses may be contaminated with Listeria. No illnesses associated with the recall have yet been reported.
