Whole Foods in Pittsburgh Issues Recall for Contaminated Cheese

Do you shop at the Whole Foods Market in Pittsburgh's East Liberty neighborhood? If so, check your refrigerator because the store has issued a recall for a brand of cheese after officials from the Allegheny County Health Department said it tested positive for listeria.

Testing of the contaminated cheese began when a Westmoreland County man developed listeriosis, a harmful bacterial infection, after consuming the tainted food. Included in the recall is Jean Perrin Edel de Cleron cheese, a soft, pasteurized cow's milk French cheese. It is packaged in clear plastic wrap and has a Whole Foods Market label with the code 293351. The cheese was sold between May 20 and July 3, 2012.

Health officials say that people who bought this brand of cheese during that time period should either throw it out or return it to the store for a full refund. Additionally, consumers are to wash their hands immediately after touching the cheese to prevent cross-contamination.

Older adults, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems are especially susceptible to listeria food poisoning. Symptoms of listeria poisoning can include confusion, diarrhea, fever, headache, loss of balance, muscle aches, and stiff neck.
