Maytag Blue Cheese Listeria Recall Expands – Details
- Updated: March 3, 2016
Whole Foods has recalled Maytag raw milk blue cheese nationwide over a possible listeria contamination.
The recall has been issued nationwide after testing in Iowa detected listeria in two lots of product. Maytag Dairy Farms voluntarily suspended production and distribution as both the FDA and State of Iowa investigate.
The cheese being recalled was sold cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap with scale labels in various weights reading “Maytag Blue Raw Milk,” “Maytag Blue” or “Maytag Iowa Blue Cheese” and with PLU numbers beginning with 293308 and “sell-by” dates of 1/20/2016 through 3/21/16.
The iconic cheese brand was on shelves in various Whole Foods Market stores nationwide.
So far no one has been sickened by the cheese, according to Whole Foods, and the recall is being done out of an “abundance of caution.”
Listeria can cause high fever, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain and other uncomfortable but non-lethal for healthy people. In pregnant women, however, listeria can cause miscarriages and stillbirths; in children, elderly people or people with compromised immune systems, however, listeria can be serious and sometimes fatal.
Customers who bought the cheese are encouraged to discard it and bring a receipt to the store for a full refund.
