"Gamle Ole" returns to Norwegian shops

Press Release   •   Mar 05, 2000 16:16 CET

Norwegian supermarkets, which removed "Gamle Ole" and "Sorte Sara" cheese from their shelves last weekend following a listeria scare, are now stocking these popular products once again.

The suspension of "Gamle Ole" and "Sorte Sara" followed a Norwegian doctor's announcement that the two cheese types were suspected of having been the cause of two serious cases of listeria poisoning, one of which was fatal. The Norwegian authorities have since confirmed that the two MD Foods products are no longer suspected of having played a role in the two incidents.
