JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.—State health and agriculture officials have halted production and distribution of a Missouri-made cheese after traces of bacteria were found in cheese sold in California.

The Missouri Department of Agriculture says it learned Thursday of the results of tests done in California on cheese made by Morningland Dairy, in the south-central town of Mountain View.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture informed Missouri officials that tests on Morningland Dairy cheese contained traces of Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus.
