The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that certain Whole Foods Market Stores are voluntarily recalling Explorateur French Triple Crème cheese because the cheese may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, pregnant women and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths and fetal infection among pregnant women.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall includes Explorateur French Triple Crème cheese (under the names Explorateur, Explorateur French Triple Crème Cheese and Explorateur Triple Crème French Cheese) which were both cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap, as well as sold in branded 8 oz. packages. All cheese had “sell by” dates from February 15, 2018 through April 3, 2018. The issue was discovered when Whole Foods Market was notified by a distributor of a positive test result for Listeria monocytogenes.
