Whole Foods Joins Cheese Recall
|The cursed curds have been pulled from shelves|
Bravo, an artisan producer that specializes in raw milk cheese, pulled all of its shipments after state officials found listeria its' plant in Traver, California. Bravo had recalled its Dutch Style Gouda earlier in the month after it had been linked to an E. Coli outbreak that sickened 38 people in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico. The gouda had been part of a cheese-promo roadshow that took it to about 50 Costco warehouses in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico.
There is a simple rule-of-thumb that, if followed, would have prevented this mess: Cheese doesn't travel well, and raw milk cheese travels much worse.
