Georgia-based Company Issues Cheese Recall

A Georgia-based company has issued a recall for cheese because it may have been contaminated by salmonella.

Flat Creek Farm and Dairy officials said in a statement that the company has recalled its Low Country Gouda, Aztec Cheddar after the company was notified in late November that the cheese may have been contaminated. Company officials say no illnesses have been reported.

Salmonella can cause fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea and more.

Flat Creek Farm and Dairy officials say the company has destroyed all of its raw milk cheese and no longer produces that type of product. Flat Creek officials say the company is now gently pasteurizing its artisanal cheeses.

Company officials say the recall was the result of sampling by the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
