Whole Foods Dorset Cheese Recalled For Possible Listeria

Whole Foods Dorset Cheese is being recalled in the Northeast and North Atlantic regions for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. No illnesses are being reported to date in connection with this recall.

This recall is in response to a recall from Consider Bardwell Farm. The recalled Dorset Cheese was sold at Whole Foods Market stores in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. The cheese was cut and wrapped in plastic with a Whole Foods Market scale label. The PLU code on the cheese is 97776. Sell by dates that are recalled go through 10/30/2019.

If you bring a valid receipt to the store where you purchased this cheese, you can get a full refund. Throw the cheese away after wrapping it in foil or plastic wrap and putting it into a secure and sturdy garbage can with a tight lid.

If you purchased this Whole Foods Dorset Cheese, you should then think about cleaning your refrigerator with a solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to 1 gallon of warm water to kill any remaining bacteria. Listeria can grow at refrigerator temperatures, freezing doesn’t kill it, and it easily establishes itself in any cool, moist environment. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after doing this cleaning and after touching the product.

If you ate this product, watch yourself for symptoms of listeriosis, the illness caused by this pathogen, for the next 70 days. That’s how long an incubation period this pathogen has. Symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only have a mild flu-like illness, but listeriosis can cause illness in the newborn, premature labor, stillbirth, and miscarriage. If you do feel sick, see your doctor and mention this recall.
