The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recalled hundreds of cases of brie cheese sold in Colorado due to possible listeria contamination.
The recall affects nearly 400 cases of President brand brie cheese in seven-ounce, gold-foil wedges, which is sold by Albertson's Food Centers throughout Colorado.
The individual cheese wedges carry the sell-by date of January 10, 2004, and the number 307 on the bottom of the packaging. Health officials say Coloradans who have the cheese in their refrigerators should return it for a refund.
The Consumer Protection Division is working with Albertson's stores to have all of the remaining cheese from the recalled lot removed from store shelves.
No illnesses are known to have occurred.
