FDA Announces Recall of don chepe cheese

Aug 22, 2005 |

New York State Agriculture Commissioner, Nathan L. Rudgers, has alerted consumers that Tanya Ivelisse Torres, doing business as NY Dominican Cheese Factory, 693 Rhinelander Avenue, Bronx, NY 10462, is recalling certain packaged cheese products because the cheese was made from unpasteurized milk and was not properly aged.

Raw milk may contain infective doses of human pathogens and consumption increases the risk of gastrointestinal illness, causing severe illness and, in certain cases, death. So far, no illnesses have been reported.

The cheese is marketed under the brand name "Don Chepe" and two styles of cheese are involved in this recall: "Queso Blanco De Freir" and "Queso Amarillo De Freir." 

The processing plant code "36-8588" appears on the label and the products are packaged in shrink wrapped plastic. Both products, regardless of date code, are involved in the recall. The products are sold and were distributed to customers in the metropolitan New York area.

The recall was initiated after sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Dairy Products Specialists and subsequent analysis by the Department’s Food Laboratory personnel revealed that milk used to manufacture the cheese was not pasteurized. 

An investigation discovered that the cheese was not properly aged according to Department dairy product safety regulations.
