SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California authorities says a company responding to an outbreak of a strain of E. coli in a brand of cheese has expanded its recall to other cheeses.

California Department of Food and Agriculture officials said Tuesday that Traver-based Bravo Farms is widening its recall to include all of the company's retail cheeses.

Bravo had previously recalled its Dutch Style Gouda after nearly 40 people in five states reportedly became sick after eating the cheese sold at stores last month.

The company says federal and state food and agricultural officials detected E. coli and Listeria following a recent investigation at the plant.

Bravo Farms is encouraging customers to either throw away the cheese or seek full refunds.
