Whole Foods Expands Listeria Vulto Creamery Cheese Recall

Whole Foods Expands Listeria Vulto Creamery Cheese Recall

On March 13, Vulto Creamery expanded a recall for raw milk cheese to include four more products that may contain Listeria monocytogenes, a risky food poisoning bacteria.

Vulto Creamery has expanded the recall to include all lots for four additional cheeses which include Andes, Blue Blais, Hamden & Walton Umber. Usually, healthy individuals are only affected in the short term, but infections can be fatal for young children, elderly people, and pregnant women.

Testing results from the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the New York Department of Agriculture and Markets identified Ouleout product contamination. Pregnant women can suffer miscarriages and stillbirth from this infection, even if they have mild or no symptoms.


The recalled products were distributed nationwide, with most being sold at retail locations in the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic states, California, Chicago Ill., Portland Ore., and Washington, D.C. None of the cheeses now linked to the outbreak were sold at Whole Foods, and the grocery chain hasn't received any reports of illness from customers who purchased the raw cheese from its stores. However, when the raw cheeses are soft - as in the case of the Vulto Creamery outbreak - they may not have been aged for long enough to kill bacteria such as listeria and salmonella.

As of March 10, 2017, Vulto Creamery is reporting that the bacteria is responsible for six illnesses and two deaths. "Food providers have a responsibility to protect the lives of their customers, especially when producing raw milk products, which pose a higher risk to consumers".
