Whole Foods Market announces that it is recalling cheese sold in California, Nevada, Washington State and Washington, D.C., that came from its supplier Sally Jackson Cheese of Oroville, Wash. The recalled cheese was cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap and sold with a Whole Foods Market scale label; some scale labels also list “Sally Jackson” as part of the description. Sally Jackson Cheese recalled its cheese products, including cow, goat, and sheep, because they may be contaminated with Escherichia coli O157:H7 bacteria.

E. coli 0157:H7 causes diarrhea illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure. Young children and the elderly are most susceptible to serious complications and even death. Consumers should seek immediate medical care if they develop these symptoms.

All of the following Sally Jackson cheese products are included in this recall:

  • Cow’s milk cheese
  • Goat’s milk cheese
  • Sheep’s milk cheese
  • Cow’s milk cheese wrapped in chestnut leaves
  • Sheep’s milk cheese wrapped in chestnut leaves
  • Goat’s milk cheese wrapped in grape leaves

Signage is posted in Whole Foods Market stores to notify customers of this recall.

Customers who have purchased any of the listed products from Whole Foods Market may return them to the store for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Whole Foods Market at 512-542-0878 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. central standard time.

UPDATE: An earlier version of this release incorrectly mentioned Listeria. Listeria is not associated with this recall and should not have been included.
