In a letter to Costco members who purchased the recalled product, a Tillamook executive said the cheese may contain “gray and black plastic pieces.”

TILLAMOOK, Ore. — Some Tillamook cheese slices sold at Costco stores in the Northwest have been recalled because there may be “gray and black plastic pieces” in some products, a Tillamook executive wrote in a June 1 letter to Costco members who bought the affected product.

“In an abundance of caution and as part of our commitment to product quality and safety at the highest levels, we are voluntarily taking action to remove this product from the marketplace,” Tillamook Executive Vice President, Chief Supply Chain Officer Mike Bever said. 

The letter explained the plastic pieces may be in the Monterey Jack Cheese that was sold in a 32 oz. twin-pack of Tillamook Colby Jack and Tillamook Monterey Jack cheese slices (item number 651195) between May 9 and May 31, 2024.

The affected product also has a “Best If Used By” date of Oct. 22, 2024.


It’s unclear, however, how many products or Costco stores in total the recall impacts. The Tillamook letter noted the recalled cheese was only produced for Costco locations in the Northwest region.  

According to the letter, the cheese slices impacted are “in a limited quantity” and the presence of plastic, if consumed without issue, “is very minimal.”

Bever notes that Costco members who still have the product should return the affected cheese slices for a full refund, however.
