4C Recalls Grated Parmesan Over Salmonella Risk

4C Grated Parmesan Recall

In between setting my fantasy football roster and purchasing baby moccasins online this morning, I came across a recall announcement from 4C Foods Corp. Since this is a brand that I’ve bought before and because it affects consumers in the Midwest — where many of my friends and family reside — I figured I should post it.

4C is recalling its 6-oz. glass jars of “Grated Cheese HomeStyle Parmesan” with best by dates of July 21, 2016 and July 22, 2016 due to possible contamination with salmonella, the Food and Drug Administration said. The product was distributed in late July in stores in Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Luckily, no illnesses have been reported to date. Still, better to err on the side of caution. If you have one of these jars, throw it away and call 4C at 1-718-272-7800 ext. 176 for a refund. 

4C’s recall comes hot on the heels of one last week by Kraft. The cheese giant voluntarily recalled 7,691 cases of Kraft American Singles Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product, blaming a supplier for failing to store an ingredient at the correct temperature, possibly leading to premature spoilage and/or food borne illness.

  1. Shit like this is so scary :S Last night I watched “Food, Inc.” for the first time (better late than never, right?) and am in hyper-sensitive-mode about the groceries (or lack there of) that I buy. Thanks for sharing! So happy THAT’S SO CHEDDAR is back! xo

  2. Good info, Caitlin. Thanks! I always get a moment of excited anticipation when I see a new post show up. And you never disappoint. Your cheese blog is not only informative, but fun to read!! ie fantasy football and baby mocassins in the same sentence!!
