Recall Alert: Certain Whole Foods And Trader Joe’s Products


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced today that company Whole Foods Market is recalling all cut, wrapped and weighed Papillion Organic Roquefort Cheeses because of possible health risk. This cheese sold in all stores nationwide has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 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. Consumers who have purchased this product from Whole Foods Market stores may bring their receipt to the store for a full refund. Consumers with questions should contact their local store or call 512-477-5566 ext. 20060 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST.
