Whole Foods cheese recall

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Whole Foods Market is recalling Crave Brothers Les Frères cheese because of the risk of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The cheese, made by Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese Company in Wisconsin, was sold in at least 31 states and Washington, D.C., the Food and Drug Administration said.

The recall follows reports that at least one person has died and another person was sickened.

The recalled Crave Brothers Les Frères cheese was cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap and sold with Whole Foods Market scale labels, the FDA said.

Listeria infection can cause high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Pregnant women can suffer a miscarriage or a stillbirth.

Whole Foods Market stores have posted signs informing customers of the recall. If you have the cheese at home, you should throw it away. You can get a refund by bringing your receipt to a store.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
