March 13, 2017 – In response to Vulto Creamery’s recall of raw milk cheeses, Whole Foods Market is expanding its own recall to include Andes, Hamden and Walton Umber cheeses sold in 8 stores in Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York.

What’s the problem?
December 20, 2010 – In response to a recall initiated earlier this month by its supplier Sally Jackson Cheese, Whole Foods Market announced today that it will be recalling cheese sold in California, Nevada, Washington State and Washington, D.C. because of possible E. coli contamination.
The recalled cheese was cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap and sold with a Whole Foods Market scale label; some scale labels also list “Sally Jackson” as part of the description.
Important E. Coli Food Poisoning Information
Symptoms of E. coli typically appear two to five days after ingestion. The first signs consist of the sudden onset of cramps and abdominal pain, followed by diarrhea within 24 hours. Diarrhea will become increasingly watery, and then noticeably bloody. People with E. coli infection also often feel nauseated and experience headaches.
