Whole Foods Issues Cheese Recall Following Listeria Contamination

Whole Foods Cheese Recall over Listeria

Whole Foods has announced the recall of all “cut, wrapped and weighed” Papillon Organic Roquefort Cheeses over concerns that it could be contaminated with Listeria.

The food retailer agreed to the recall after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found Listeria during routine sampling on a wheel of the cheese.

The listeria infection was severe enough to demand a recall on all sell dates of the chese.

Listeria is a serious infection that tends to affect older adults, pregnant women, newborns and adults with weakened immune systems.

“No illnesses or infections have been reported to date,” said a press release on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website.

Whole Foods says consumers are entitled to a full refund on the product if they bring their receipt to the store.
