Whole Foods Recalls Organic Cheese due to Potential Listeria Contamination

Oct 9, 2015
Organic Cheese Recall

Whole Foods Recalling Organic Cheese

Whole Foods Market is recalling all cut, wrapped and weighed Papillon Organic Roquefort cheeses sold nationwide. The recall is being issued after the FDA found listeria in a whole, uncut wheel of cheese. The recalled cheeses' scale label begins with PLU 029536 and involves all sell by dates. No injuries and illnesses have been reported thus far. The product has been removed from store shelves.

Listeria Causes

Eating food contaminated with listeria monocytogenes can lead to listeriosis, which can be life-threatening in the elderly, young children and individuals with a compromised immune system. The FDA stated that “Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Consumers should seek immediate medical care if they develop these symptoms.”

Symptoms may appear as soon as a few days or as late as two months after eating the tainted food. Customers affected by the recall can get a refund by bringing their receipt to the store.
