Sprout Creek Farm announces cheese recall
Wheels of cheese distributed throughout New York have been recalled because they are potentially contaminated with listeria monocytogenes. Sprout Creek Farm, based in Poughkeepsie, New York, has recalled 132 wheels of “Margie” cheese due to the possible health risks involved.
Margie cheese is made from cow’s milk and has a soft, white rind. It is packaged with a green round label, wrapped in white milk paper and packed in one-pound wheels. The cheese being recalled has a lot number make date of 10-9-18 and a best by date of 12-9-18.
The potentially contaminated cheese was distributed to:
- Hudson Valley Harvest, 750 Enterprise Dr, Kingston, NY 12401
- Mohonk Mountain House, 1000 Mountain Rest Rd, New Paltz, NY 12561
- Olsen and Company, 81 Partition St, Saugerties, NY 12477

- Stinky Brooklyn, 215 Smith St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
- Ocean House Oyster Bar & Grill, 49 N Riverside Ave, Croton-On-Hudson, NY 10520
The cheese was recalled after a routine US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspection of Sprout Creek Farm’s cheese production facility. During the inspection samples were sent to an FDA Lab for testing and Listeria monocytogenes was found in the cheese.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
