A nationwide recall of grated cheese is currently underway after it was discovered that the products may have possibly been contaminated with salmonella.

"4C Foods Corp. is voluntarily recalling 4C Grated Cheese, Homestyle Grated Cheese, and Cento Grated Cheese Brands due to possible contamination with Salmonella," reported the FDA. "Other 4C Foods products, including any other cheese products, are not impacted by this recall."

The recalled products, which were packed in 6 oz. vacuum-sealed glass jars and have "best by" dates between November 12, 2016 and November 12, 2018, are being recalled out of an "abundance of caution" after FDA testing revealed the issue.
