Cheese maker Union Cheese Co. and two cheese distributors said Wednesday they will voluntarily recall some of their products in the wake of Meiji Dairies Corp.’s recall Monday following the discovery of pieces of metal in cheese ingredients imported from Germany.

Union Cheese, which uses the same German ingredients as Meiji Dairies, said it will withdraw some 380,000 cheese products from shops run by supermarket chains Seiyu GK, Seijo Ishii Co. and cheese provider Chesco Co.

Cheese maker Tokyo Dairy Co. and cheese seller Hoko Co. also said they will voluntarily recall their products.
