The cheeses have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

As of March 10, 2017 Vulto Creamery is reporting the particular strain of Listeria monocytogenes is responsible for 6 illnesses and 2 deaths; however, Whole Foods Market has not received any reports of illnesses or injuries from consumers who purchased the raw cheeses from their stores.
