(CNN) – If you recently bought Sargento cheese products be cautious, some of the products are being taken off the shelves because of Listeria concerns.

The company recalled seven types of cheese, including sliced Colby, Muenster and Pepper Jack last week.

The list also includes tomato and basil jack, shredded reduced Colby Jack, Shredded Chef Blends Four-Cheese Pizzeria and Artisan Blends Double Shredded Cheddar.

Sargento also says it has ended its relationship with the supplier of those cheeses, Deutsch Kase Haus.

Several other Sargento cheese products were recalled last week.

The company says there have been no confirmed illnesses from any of the recalled products.

Consumers can also call Sargento Consumer Affairs at 1-800-243-3737 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., (Central Time) Monday through Friday, or send questions to the “Contact Us” page at sargento.com.
