Whole Foods Cheese Recall

Posted: Updated:

A deadly outbreak of bacterial infection is prompting Whole Foods to recall a brand of cheese.

Whole Foods says the Crave Brothers Les Freres cheese may be contaminated with listeria.

It was sold in 30 states and Washington D.C.

Public health officials in Illinois say one person became sick after eating the contaminated cheese and an elderly person died in Minnesota due to illnesses linked to the cheese.

Whole Foods is posting signs in its stores to inform shoppers about the recall.
