AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - A recall has expanded after cheese maker Sargento added seven additional products to the list of possibly contaminated cheeses.
It was just over a week ago that the company learned of possible bacteria in some of their products.
The recall is due to a potential listeria monocytogenes contamination in Longhorn Colby cheese supplied by Deutsch Kase Haus. Sargento says the company has terminated its relationship with Deutsch Kase Haus "out of concern for the health and well-being of Sargento consumers."

Sargento Sliced Colby
Sargento Sliced Muenster
Sargento Sliced Pepper Jack
