- Brie de Nangis 1kg - Best Before 18/02/19, 18/03/19, 04/03/19, 26/03/19
The recall is due to potential microbial Listeria monocytogenes contamination - listeria may cause illness in pregnant women and their unborn babies, the elderly and people with low immune systems.
The popular white mould cheeses were also sold in delis, cheeserooms, restaurants and other independent stores in not only Victoria but NSW, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.
"Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund," Washed Rind said in a statement.
