Finally, Halal Certified Cheddar Cheese 

Sharp Classic Vermont Cheddar Cheese manufactured by Cabot.

It has a Halal certification symbol on the package just right next to the Kosher symbol. (Alhamdulillah, YES!!)

Also on the same note, here is what Sargento has to say:

Q. Are Sargento products kosher?
No, our products are not kosher because their production is not supervised and certified by a rabbi. If, however, you are asking about the sources of our enzymes, none of our products contain pork enzymes. In fact, the only Sargento natural cheeses that may contain animal enzymes are those that contain Romano, Provolone, Asiago or Jarlsberg cheeses.

Those include:

Fancy Parmesan & Romano Shredded Cheese
6 Cheese Italian Shredded Cheese
Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Italian Shredded Cheese
ChefStyle Mozzarella & Provolone Shredded Cheese
Deli Style Sliced Provolone
Reduced Fat Deli Style Sliced Provolone
Romano Wedges
Bistro Blends Mozzarella & Asiago with Roasted Garlic Shredded Cheese
Deli Style Sliced Jarlsberg Cheese
Sargento Limited Edition Aged Provolone shredded, sliced, and snack cheeses.
The cheese dip in our non-refrigerated Sargento Snacks, Cheese Dips!, Cheese Dip & Sticks, Cheese Dip & Cheddar Sticks, Cheese Dip & Pretzels, and Cheese Dip & Crackers, is made with beef rennet.

If you are interested in knowing whether any other Sargento products contain animal products, you should know that Sargento Bistro Melts Swiss Portobello Sliced Cheese contains chicken.
