Jindi Cheese Co is recalling all cheeses produced before 7 January following an outbreak of Listeria infections that has been linked to the company.

Officials at Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) said late last week that 18 cases of listeria infection across Australia have been linked to batches of Jindi soft and semi-soft cheese sold at delicatessens and supermarkets.

Two people have died from listeria infections, although officials have continued to warn against jumping to conclusions without concrete evidence.

However, FSANZ told consumers not to eat any of the cheese being recalled by Victoria-based Jindi, which covers all cheeses made at its plant before 7 January.

In a statement on its website today (21 January), Jindi’s CEO, Frank Beaurain, said: “We are currently undertaking a voluntary and precautionary recall of our cheeses and are working closely with the department of health.”

He added that product quality and stringent standards are “the foundations of our business”.

FSANZ added: “Victorian Department officials visited the Jindi factory in Jindivick on Wednesday, and were satisfied that appropriate food processing, hygiene and monitoring practices were being followed for the manufacture of products from 7 January.”
