Apple Tree Goat Dairy Goat Cheese

The FDA urges consumers to not eat any Apple Tree goat cheeses, to check their homes for the cheeses, and to throw them away.

To help avoid these goat cheeses contaminating any other foods, consumers should follow these simple steps:

•Wash hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food.

•Wash the inside walls and shelves of the refrigerator, cutting boards and countertops; then sanitize them with a solution of one tablespoon of chlorine bleach to one gallon of hot water; then dry with a clean cloth  or paper towel that has not been previously used.

•Wipe-up spills in the refrigerator immediately and clean the refrigerator regularly.

•Always wash hands with warm water and soap following the cleaning and sanitization process.
