Frigo Cheese

The frigo string cheese i purchased tastes like mold had diarrhea all day | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea See Less

Cheese taste chemically almost like moldy. Very hard to describe taste. Expires 30jun2354. Stomach is upset and vomiting | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting See Less

Something is definitely wrong with this cheese. Too many other people complaining of the same thing at this point for this to be a coincidence

My Frigo cheesehead original string cheese is dated August 10, 2023 (24 pack). I had been buying it for about a year and it had become my new favorite, however, the last couple of bags tasted funny. They smelled okay and I didn't actually get sick. This... See More last bag though really tasted odd. I only tried two. The chemical/perfume description sounds closest to mine. I am not trying it again unless the company announces a DARN good reason for the taste being off. See Less

Hello! We purchased a 24 pack of the light string cheese last Friday. (April 28th) we are now on Friday (May 5th) and we have notice that our light string cheese tastes like dirt! We have tried it 2 different times, on different days and they have... See More both tasted like dirt, we love this brand and it is a regular in our house so we believe we have a bad batch that has something growing on it. The expiration date isn’t until June of 23’ so I’m not sure why these would taste like dirt other than we got a bad batch! I don’t see a batch number on the bag otherwise I would include that too. My family has been experiencing diarrhea for the past day and we are wondering if it is this string cheese that caused it. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less

For like 6 months we have been buying Frigo string cheese for our daughter and nearly vomiting at first bite due to a strong moldy flavor. We thought we were going crazy until I found this forum. I am amazed this product is still on the market... See More with this strong and consistent experience. At this point, our family will no longer be purchasing Frigo!! | Symptoms: Vomiting See Less

1 package was purchased at here in Lewisburg wv and 1 package was purchased at Kroger in Hinton wv, I tasted like they cleaned the machine and forgot to rinse after cleaning tasted like chemical residue and was almost slimytexture awful and I bought 2 big packs... See More refund would be nice also the package purchased at Kroger in Hinton wv seemed like every other one was spoiled I still have the package purchased from Walmart Lewisburg wv I can mail them to you for analysis | Symptoms: Nausea, Other See Less

The last year each pack of cheese sticks I bought would have a couple that tasted like rusted metal so that's the first thing that came to mind, now every pack I buy I can only find 1 maybe 2 in each row over them so 12.99$... See More a pack wasted
I contacted them like a month or so ago and reported this and the issue has only gotten way worse. I never went to the doctor but now it's time I do. The nausea,upset stomach,diarrhea and extremely bad abdominal pain is absolutely crazy and they know this is happening and done nothing to fix the problem. What do I do? Contact an attorney? | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Stomach Pain

I've seen some other complaints about Frigo string cheese on here, there is definitely an issue.

My husband and I and our son were eating this (Frigo Cheese Head string cheese) for the past week. He recently noticed that one he opened tasted very bad. Then we realized that was a constant food we all had eaten. Possibly the cause of the diarrhea... See More and vomiting with us and our 2 year old. Moldy and musky taste. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less
