WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A California company is voluntarily recalling all flavors of its cashew cheese because it might be contaminated by salmonella.

The Cultured Kitchen of West Sacramento said the affected cheese includes all those with expiration dates until April 19, 2014. It was sold in 8-ounce round containers at natural food stores and farmers markets in the Sacramento Valley, San Francisco Bay Area and Reno, the company said Tuesday.

The Cultured Kitchen said the recall was initiated after it was suspected that raw materials used to make the cashew cheese could have been contaminated "with a specific strain of salmonella found almost exclusively in Southeast Asia, where the company's cashews are sourced."

The listed flavors are herb, smoked cheddar, pepper jack, habanero cilantro lime, pesto, basil pesto and white cheddar.

Consumers who purchased the affected products are advised to return them to their place of purchase or throw them away.
