The products were packaged at the Sargento plant in Plymouth, Wisconsin, and were distributed across the U.S.
Sargento also recalled some products that were packaged on the same line as the affected cheese. No illness have been reported in connection with this recall.
Symptoms of listeria food poisoning (listeriosis) include fever, muscle aches, nausea and/or diarrhea. If the infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms may include confusion, loss of balance, convulsions and death.
An estimated 1,600 people in the U.S. get listeriosis each year, and about 260 people die from the illness.
