New York-based Finger Lakes Farmstead Cheese is recalling 12 wheels of gouda cheese manufactured on December 20, 2012, due to contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. This production batch has been labeled both “Schuyler” and “Bier Meck” gouda. The product was distributed in New York State, predominantly in the Albany region, and was distributed to retail stores and restaurants. The label on the product will clearly state the product name and the company name. These products were sold to the distributor Adventure in Food Trading on March 26, 2013. No illnesses have been reported to date. However, due to the time involved in tracing illnesses back to specific products, it is impossible to say whether anyone has fallen ill from this food. The contamination was found during sampling by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Consumers who have purchased Finger Lakes Farmstead Cheese Company’s Schuyler Gouda or Bier Meck Gouda with a production date of 12-20-12 are urged to return the product for a full refund.
