CACIQUE CHEESE PLANT REOPENS

 CACIQUE CHEESE PLANT REOPENS
 SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The California


Department of Food and Agriculture announced today that the Cacique Cheese Co., City of Industry, Los Angeles County, has been allowed to resume cheese manufacturing and sales.
 On Dec. 3 the company voluntarily recalled their Ranchero cheese with the "sell by Dec. 5, 1991" date and stopped production as a precautionary measure because Listeria monocytogenes bacteria were found in two samples of Ranchero cheese.
 Dairy foods specialists from CDFA's Milk and Dairy Foods Control Branch conducted a thorough investigation at the plant taking environmental, product and ingredient samples as well as inspecting the plant's equipment and reviewing manufacturing procedures and records.
 Of the 155 samples of cheese, representing all varieties of Cacique's cheese production, tested by the University of California Veterinary Diagnostic laboratories in Davis and San Bernardino, none tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
 The company gave the investigators their full cooperation.
