Montana Costco shoppers may have recently gotten a surprise letter in the mail as the company has sent out letters to customers who recently bought Tillamook cheese that could potentially contain plastics.

The letter states that according to Costco's records, letter recipients may have bought a box containing two 32 oz. packs of Tillamook Colby Jack and Tillamook Monterey Jack cheese slices (item number 651195) between May 9 and May 31, 2024.

Tillamook discovered a small amount of gray and black plastic pieces in a specific batch of Monterey Jack cheese.

This affected batch is included in the 32 oz. package of Tillamook Monterey Jack and Tillamook Colby Jack cheese slices, with a "Best If Used By" date of October 22, 2024.

The batch was produced exclusively for Costco stores in the Northwest region, which included Montana.

As a precautionary measure, Coscto chose to proactively withdraw this product from the market before an official recall from the federal government was issued.

If you still possess the affected cheese, refrain from consuming it and proceed to return the package to your nearby Costco store in order to receive a complete reimbursement.

If you have already ingested the cheese without any problems, the retail giant states that there is no need for you to do anything, as the potential presence of the foreign plastic material is extremely low.

If you have any concerns, customers are asked to contact Tillamook at or toll-free at 855-562-3568.

This self-imposed recall is just one of the latest in a severe rash of recalls from major food conglomerates across the nation.
