LOS ANGELES (AP) — Surtex Foods Co. says it is recalling its Oaxaca (wah-HAH'-kah) string cheese because it may be contaminated with a pair of bacteriums.
The Los Angeles-based company said Monday that its "La Original" brand, which comes in a 17.63-ounce clear package could be susceptible to Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus.
The product was distributed only in California. No illnesses have been reported.
The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by the Food and Drug Administration and the company has ceased the production and distribution of the string cheese brand.
The company is investigating what caused the problem.
