What's the Problem?
This recall affects 14 ounce containers of Little Hatches Jalapeno Cream Cheese, UPC code 63818396147, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
"The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the FDA revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in 14 ounce packages of Little Hatches Jalapeno Cream Cheese," FDA said. "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 and stillbirths among pregnant women."
The recalled jalapeno cream cheese was distributed in 6 Whole Foods stores in the Denver Colorado Metro area, and sold in a clear plastic package marked with sell by date of 05/21 on top of container.
If you purchased any Whole Foods jalapeno cream cheese that is affected by this recall, you should not eat it, and either throw it away or return it to Whole Foods for a refund.
Anyone concerned about a potential listeria food poisoning illness should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
