Nine Whole Foods Stores Recall Cheeses for Listeria

Nine Whole Foods markets in four states are recalling Vulto Creamery’s soft wash-rind raw milk cheeses from their stores after FDA testing found Listeria monocytogenes in one of the cheeses.  The stores are located in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, and New York. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the consumption of these products.

Important Notice Recall

Vulto Creamery recalled their raw milk cheeses when the FDA found Ouleout lot #617 positive for Listeria, and the New York Department of Agriculture and Markets found the possible contamination of Ouleout lot #623. The Whole Foods recall includes Vulto Creamery Ouleout and Miranda soft wash-rind raw milk cheeses which were cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap. The scale labels begin with PLU codes 0200305 and 0200306. The sell by dates on the products range from 12/27/2016 to 03/28/2017.

Oulelot cheeses were sold at the Whole Foods Market stores at 35 Grasmere Avenue in Fairfield, Connecticut and 115 Prospect Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Miranda cheese products were sold at these Whole Foods Market stores: 70 Great Road, Bedford, Massachusetts; 575 Worcester Road, Framingham, Massachusetts; 647 Washington Street, Newton, Massachusetts; 2 Somerset Street, Portland, Maine; 1425 Central Avenue, Albany, New York; 250 7th Ave, New York, New York; and 270 Greenwich Street, New York, New York.

If you purchased these products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed or double bagged container so other people and animals can’t eat them, or take them or your receipt back to the place of purchase for a refund. Then clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution.

If you ate these recalled products, monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only have a mild flu-like illness, but this infection can cause stillbirth and miscarriage. If you do feel ill, see your doctor.
