Sheridans recalls cheese batch due to listeria detection

The Food Safety Authority issued the alert this afternoon.

A RECALL HAS been ordered of a batch of Sheridans Cheesemongers Brie de Meaux due to a listeria detecion.

Sheridan Cheesemongers Ltd. is recalling the batches of Brie de Meaux cheese with the approval number IE 1949 EC and the use-by date of 19 November 2017.

This is due to the detection of listeria monocytogenes in this batch.

Listeria can cause diarrhoea, fever, headache and muscle pain in a very short period. There have been very few cases of listeria in Ireland recorded to date.

The cheeses are from France, but were cut at Sheridans’ premises and distributed in Ireland.

Brie de Meaux, nicknamed the “king of cheeses”, is one of the best known soft cheeses in France. It’s a soft, mould rind cheese made from raw cows’ milk and takes its name from the town of Meaux, which is located around 50km east of Paris.
