    Two Haut Livradois brand cheese are being recalled for Salmonella contamination.

    A French cheesemaker is recalling two of its offerings from the U.S. market because they could be contaminated with Salmonella.

    Ste Fromagere du Livradois is recalling its Haut Livradois brand Raclette and Monboissie cheeses with lot No. 350. They were distributed in supermarkets and gourmet stories nationwide between March 10 and May 6, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

    Both cheeses come as a 13-pound wheel and are usually cut and wrapped.

    The voluntary recall was initiated after a routine sampling program by the FDA found the presence of Salmonella in some products.

    Consumers are urged to contact their distributor or retailer for a full refund.
