Listeria Outbreak At Whole Foods!

Listeria, which can cause death in children, the elderly, and in people with suppressed immune systems, has been found in ricotta cheese sold by Whole Foods. According to Whole Foods, all four of their stores here in Georgia have been affected. The Center for Disease Control (and Prevention!) has an update on their website here.

This is one of a number of labels to look for, but all ricotta cheese bought from Whole Foods should be closely examined.

If you have any questions about Food Safety, Listeria, Whole Foods, or even Ricotta cheese as a concept, please call the Attorneys of Turkheimer & Hadden or visit our web site at
