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.

    A year and a half after Superstorm Sandy hit New York, a major city emergency facility that was destroyed finally fully reopened Thursday — with waterproof walls. Gov. Andrew Cuomo joined Mayor Bill de Blasio and other dignitaries to celebrate the emergency complex at the NYU Langone Medical Center, which is now triple the size of the old one and equipped with the latest technology.

    Studies: office layout can affect your mental and physical health

    Leaving the office, most of us feel pretty exhausted. Studies now suggest that we can blame much of what ails us physically and mentally on the layout of our workspace. American companies standardized the sprawling square room divided by cubicles or nothing to foster team atmosphere. But newer research suggests that the open-plan office actually raises stress while lowering motivation and focus and maybe even reducing life-expectancy.
