Popular cheese recalled because of E-Coli fears

Health officials have recalled a popular brand of Queensland made cheese due to contamination fears.

Blackall Gold Washed Rind 200g with a Best Before date of 10th September, 2018 is being recalled after tests showed high levels of E-Coli which could cause illness.

The cheese is made by the Woombye Cheese Company on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.


The cheese is sold through dozens of delis, grocers and fine food stores across Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria and South Australia as well as selected IGA Supermarkets.
