WALKER -- Meijer is expanding its recent cheese recall to include Meijer brand Artisan Made Natural Muenster Cheese and its pre-wrapped ham subs sold in December due to a potential cross contamination with listeria, according to the Grand Rapids Press.
There have been no known illnesses reported to the Midwest retailer associated with the cheese.
The latest recall comes after Meijer received notice of a possible contamination from its supplier, MDS Foods. The newly recalled cheese was processed on the same line as previously recalled cheese, announced Feb. 10.

The affected Meijer brand Artisan Made Natural Muenster Cheese was located on "cheese islands" within the deli section and has the expiration dates of March 28, 2017, May 13, 2017, and June 10, 2017.
The Meijer pre-made ham sub on artisan white baguette was located in the retailer's "grab-and-go" fresh deli cases with sell by dates between Nov. 2 - Dec. 30, 2016.
The Muenster cheese have UPC code of 8-86926 27573-5 and the subs have a UPC code 7-13733 76499-5.
Customers should stop using the cheese and either dispose of it or return it to the customer service desk at any Meijer store for a full refund. Meijer is asking customers to call the 24-hour line 1-800-543-3704 if they have additional questions.
