All Sally Jackson Cheeses are being recalled because they may be contaminated with E.coli, the Food and Drug Administration announced Friday.

The cheeses from the company are made from raw cows', goats', and sheep milk. They do not carry labels or bar codes, because they are wrapped in leaves and tied with twine. The cheeses are all soft raw milk cheeses, and were distributed nationwide to restaurants, distributors, and retail stores.

Previous outbreaks have linked E.coli to raw dairy products, according to research.

    Pasteurizing the milk products denatures the proteins and kills ALL the healthy bacteria. I'm sure all of you, since youre so well versed in raw dairy matters, will remember one incident in which the head of a raw dairy farm inoculated his raw milk with E coli, listeria, and salmonella, then DRANK IT. And he didn't get sick. the natural bacterial defenses of the raw milk killed the pathogens.

    The best thing you can do to avoid getting sick??? DON'T EAT SHIT FOOD AND KEEP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPERCHARGED

    While eating organically and consuming "raw" vegetables, grass fed meats, free-range poultry/eggs, dairy, and the like may be healthy and may help cleanse our systems of years of exposure to dyes and preservatives by opting new dietary trends; this yet, goes to show it also poses risks. Just because things are labled "organic" or "raw" do not mean that the environments they come from are always sterile, safe, and free of the possibility of life threatening bacteria.

      Thank you for the very "dry" comment.

    Soft cheeses are also often contaminated with Listeria, a bacterium which attacks the brain among other sites. Anyone who eats unpasteurized dairy products is playing Russian roulette. There is no scientifically supported reason to avoid pasteurized products. L\Significant loss of nutritional value is a bogus claim.

      There are no scientifically supported reasons to do a lot of things. We're all going to die someday. Quit crying and eat the cheese...

      Only 8 people in over 200 years have died from cheese contaminated with Listeria. It is VERY rare. Not like playing Russian Roulette at all. You must work for the Dairy Association which has been compaigning intensely to eliminate all raw milk from retail.

        Only 8 confirmed deaths from L. monocytogenes in 200 yrs. That is the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard. We didn't even realize it was a food borne disease until 1981, we didn't even know what bacteria were 200 years ago. Please shut your mouth unless you know what you are talking about. Correcting disinformation is that most annoying part of being in the food industry.

      Please, explain how the loss of nutritional value from pasteurization is bogus. The milk is stripped of its enzymatic activity entirely, all the proteins are denatured, and all beneficial bacteria is killed. From the nutritional standpoint of 50 years ago, i.e. not paying attention to enzymatic content, purely mineral and crude nutritional content, it is "the same", although it has been boiled to death and will no longer be healthy to consume. I'd rather take my chances with E.Coli/salmonella/Listeria
