There are two recalls of Castelmagno Dop cheese published on the official website of the Ministry of Health on the indication of the producers themselves due to the risk of food contamination, in both cases by the “verocytotoxic” Escherichia Coli bacterium (Stec or Vtec). A third alert was then issued by Carrefour and always concerns the same cheese.

The first alert concerns a batch of Beppino Occelli brand Castelmagno Dop from the Beppino Occelli Formaggeria Srl company. The problem concerns the possible presence of E. Coli STEC. The production batch of the cheese is 23151011, produced in forms of variable weight and the expiry date is 03/09/2024. The headquarters of the factory is Prella 65/C in Farigliano.

The other alert on the ministry's website always concerns the same batch of Castelmagno Dop cheese but in this case it is a Montagna product under the Tino Paiolo brand of the Azienda Soc. Agricola La Bruna di Fiandino Davide & CSS

The third recall of Castelmagno DOP is that of Carrefour but the cheese is a product of Montagna Terre D'Italia, sold in slices of variable weight, with expiry dates of 03/09/2024 and 03/10/2024.

In the note published by the Ministry of Health we read that the recall was issued due to microbiological risk, motivated by the suspected presence of Escherichia coli, the main producer of Shiga toxins . The recommendation is clearly not to consume the product and return it to the point of sale.
