Whole Foods voluntarily recalls cheese

Sedona AZ (April 10, 2018) – Whole Foods is voluntarily recalling Explorateur French Triple Crème cheese from nine stores in New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Illinois, Connecticut, and New Jersey because the product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to a press release from the Food and Drug Administration. The issue was discovered after Whole Foods was contacted by a distributor, who found the cheese was tainted by the potentially fatal bacterium.

The product is labeled under three separate names: Explorateur, Explorateur French Triple Crème Cheese, and Explorateur Triple Crème French Cheese. Each variation is cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap or sold in branded 8-ounce portions. All cheese had “sell by” dates of 2/15/2018 through 4/3/2018.

Customers who purchased this cheese are urged to throw it out. Those wishing for compensation can bring a receipt into the store for a full refund. A full list of affected locations and PLU codes can be found on the FDA’s website.

    Heads up Sedona. Whole Foods markets closing are in Montgomery and Mobile, Alabama; Tarzana, California; Brookline, Massachusetts; and in Englewood and DePaul neighborhoods in Chicago, Illinois. Most of these locations will shut almost immediately (May 6) while Englewood will close in the coming months.

  6. Washington Post Baby Formula Shortage says:

    From Washington Post article !! Abbott baby food recall and nationwide shortage of baby formula!! Biden admin did nothing when asked months ago to look into issue !! Find the entire article online and go ahead and get mad !! Sign me one new mom !! ……….

    …..Members of Congress have expressed frustration with both Abbott and the FDA, with Republicans also singling out the broader Biden administration for criticism over the formula shortage.
    “Months ago, I called for the FDA to take action on this looming crisis, and the Biden administration failed to provide a timely, substantive response,” Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) said in a statement on Friday.
    House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa L. DeLauro (D-Conn.) said she received a lengthy report from a former Abbott employee who registered a litany of complaints about conditions at the Sturgis plant with the FDA last October.
    But the agency did not interview the whistleblower until late December, DeLauro said at a hearing in April. The FDA began its inspection at the plant on Jan. 31, and the recall was issued on Feb. 17, according to FDA documents.
