Whole Foods cheese recall

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Whole Foods Market is recalling Crave Brothers Les Frères cheese because of the risk of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The cheese, made by Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese Company in Wisconsin, was sold in at least 31 states and Washington, D.C., the Food and Drug Administration said.

The recall follows reports that at least one person has died and another person was sickened.

The recalled Crave Brothers Les Frères cheese was cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap and sold with Whole Foods Market scale labels, the FDA said.

Listeria infection can cause high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Pregnant women can suffer a miscarriage or a stillbirth.

Whole Foods Market stores have posted signs informing customers of the recall. If you have the cheese at home, you should throw it away. You can get a refund by bringing your receipt to a store.

  • Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Basil plants grow on a New Jersey farm, but the facility could be turned into a five-acre medical marijuana greenhouse with only 48 hours' notice. The hoses from the state-of-the-art Dutch hydroponic system are watering flowers now, but with a few minor adjustments could just as easily grow marijuana plants for medicinal cannabis. The only reason it's not happening now is because the company is publicly traded and subject to federal law.
