Kentucky Cheese Company Recalls Products In 7 States

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese has recalled several varieties of cheese due to possible listeria monocytogenes contamination.
    
A statement from the Austin, Ky., company on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's website says the varieties are Kentucky Rose, Kentucky Bleu, Awe-Brie and Tomme de Nena.
    
The statement said listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. It can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
    
The cheeses were sold to farmers markets, restaurants, distributors and retail stores in Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia between Aug. 22 and Sept. 25.
    
Whole Foods Market also issued a recall for the Kenny's products sold in its Louisville, Ky., and Nashville, Tenn., stores.
