New York State officials are investigating a a possible listeria contamination in cheese that’s made near Cooperstown — but was sold in Ithaca.

According to the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets, the cheese in question is, “Toma Celena – Raw Milk Alpine Table Cheese”.

The affected cheese displays a plant-number of 36-8524, with a code of 51017.

The cheese is made by the Cooperstown Cheese Company. The product was sold in several locations including Ithaca.

Ham salad sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches and seafood stuffing sold this October at three New York chains are possibly contaminated with Listeria, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Thursday.

All three products have been recalled from the shelves of northeastern Hannaford, Target, and American Food and Vending stores. Turkey Hill minimarts, located in Pennsylvania, are also included.

The sandwiches and stuffing were prepared by Greencore. The international convenience food corporation issued a voluntary recall on Sept. 29, after several FDA tests found Listeria monocytogenes in the company’s finished products.

Stores were told to remove and destroy the affected products.
