Just a few days ago the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that:

“Maytag Dairy Farms is expanding its voluntary recall of “Maytag Blue” blue cheese wedges, wheels and crumbles because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.”

Wholefoods has confirmed the dairy food contamination report announced by issuing a full refund for the recalled CPG products.

Last year a similar story surfaced when … “a raw milk dairy in Washington state has voluntarily recalled some of its raw milk and cream products after a recent routine test found Listeria monocytogenes bacteria in a sample of raw cream.”
