Cottonwood River Reserve is one of the recently recalled cheeses

Cottonwood River Cheddar is among the cheeses recalled due to potential listeria concerns.


Cheddar, brie and other cheese products made by Paris Brothers were recalled across nine states earlier this month due to concerns over potential contamination from listeria monocytogenes. The recalled cheeses were sold at Price Chopper, Super Saver, Fareway and other grocery chains. 

Listeria infections can cause serious or fatal infections in young children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems, including pregnant women, the Food and Drug Administration said in the recall notice posted June 1. 

The FDA found the presence of listeria in the cheeses during a routine sampling. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the contamination.

The cheeses were produced on May 4, 5 and 6, 2022, and were sold in grocery stores across Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Oklahoma, Nebraska, South Dakota, Mississippi and Florida.

Recalled cheeses include:

  • Cottonwood River Cheddar
  • D'amir Brie Double Crème French Brie
  • Milton Prairie Breeze White Cheddar Style
  • Milton Tomato Garlic Cheddar
  • Paris Brothers Mild Cheddar
  • Paris Brothers Colby Jack
  • Paris Brothers Pepper Jack 
  • Cervasi Pecorino Romano

The affected cheeses have the lot codes 05042022, 05052022 or 05062022. If you purchased one of those cheeses, you can return it to the store for a full refund. The full list of stores and product labels is available on the FDA website.
