Sally Jackson Cheese recalled

Today brought the sad news that all of Sally Jackson's cheeses have been voluntarily recalled.

This is the result of a recent outbreak of e-coli in the area, linked to a cheese plate upon which her cheese, among others, was consumed.  Tami Parr of Pacific Northwest Cheese Project has a summary here.

This is pretty devastating for me right now, and after speaking briefly with Sally this morning, it is very up in the air as to what will come of this. What I do know is that the strain of e-coli found in the persons who became sick has not been specifically linked to her cheese, this is a cautionary measure at this time.

Anyone who has purchased, or is planning to purchase one of our Pacific Northwest Selections for the holiday season, which feature a wedge of Sally Jackson goat, we will be substituting an equally delicious product from the area.

If you bought any Sally Jackson cheese from my shop in the past 2-3 weeks, please dispose of any unconsumed portions. If you like, you may return any unconsumed cheese of hers in exchange for another cheese.

  1. So sad to hear it. I bought it last Friday and I am thinking of coming over and get other in place of that. Thanks for informing and giving the idea or replacing it with any other one.
