Homestead Creamery License Renewed After E. coli O103 Outbreak

The Missouri Department of Agriculture has reinstated the plant license for Homestead Creamery of Jamesport following an inspection this week. Earlier this month a 250-pound batch of Flory’s Favorite cheese was being pulled from stores. The 60-day aged cheese is labeled as “Packed On 210.”

It was sold at the Homestead Creamery facility in Jamesport. It also may have been sold by HyVee grocery stores in Liberty and Trenton, Benedict Builders’ Farm in Knob Noster and Milton Creamery in Milton, Iowa.

Missouri Department of Health has reported that three people became sick with E. coli O103 after consuming the cheese the creamery made with unpasteurized cow’s milk.
