A health alert has been issued, with Woombye Cheese Company recalling certain cheese products.
The recall has been issued for the following products, which have been available at fresh food markets, grocers, independent stores and selected IGA stores in NSW and QLD:

The Camembert 200g with the best before date of September 6, 2018 was sold at the Regional Flavours Brisbane Markets on July 21 and 22.
The products have been recalled due to microbial contamination.
It is understood that a high E.coli count was present.
Any consumers who are concerned about their health should seek medical advice and return the products to their place of purchase for a full refund.
Unfortunately, our most recent food safety tests have recorded further positive results for microbial contamination and we have decided to recall the following products (see image attached). The products have been available for sale at fresh food markets, grocers, independent stores and selected IGA stores in NSW and QLD. Although only minimal quantities of these products are in the marketplace, this post and formal further notice is required. Note for the Regional Flavours Brisbane Markets held on 21/22 July 18, there were only 28 units of the Camembert 200g Best Before 06.09.18 sold at our stand (note updated best before date since the previous post) Food safety is of utmost importance to everything we do at Woombye Cheese and we would like to thank our customers for their amazing support over the years and apologise for any inconvenience that has been caused by this.
