Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese Company of Wisconsin has recalled several of its cheese products, which are carried by Whole Foods, due to possibly deadly Listeria contamination. Our Pearland, TX recall attorneys for contaminated foods note that the cheese has already been linked to at least one death as well as illnesses.
The recalled Crave Brothers cheese products are:
- Les Frères, made on 7/1/13 or before and packages in white plastic with a green and gold label (LF225 2/2, 5);
- Petit Frère, made on 7/1/13 or before and packaged in small, round, wooden boxes (PF88 8/8 oz.); and
- Petit Frère with Truffles, made on 7/1/13 or before and also packaged in small, round, wooden boxes (PF88T 8/8 oz.).
Denena Points, PC’ Pearland, TX recall attorneys for contaminated foods mention that the cheeses were reportedly sold in Whole Foods retail markets, through food service outlets, and also by mail.
The U.S. FDA has said that the possible contamination of the cheeses consists of Listeria monocytogenes, which could cause serious or fatal infections in susceptible individuals like the elderly, frail, those with weakened immune systems, or young children. Symptoms of Listeria infection might include: severe headaches, high fevers, nausea, stiffness, abdominal pains, and/or diarrhea. Listeria monocytogene infections could also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
If you have any of the potentially contaminated cheese products, Denena Points, PC’ Pearland, TX recall attorneys for contaminated foods urge you to dispose of them immediately. The recall notice advises that you should be able to get your purchase price refunded by presenting your receipt.

Recalls of Potentially Dangerous Food Products on the Rise since U.S. FDA Received Enhanced Authority over these Consumables
You might have noticed that over the past year or so, the FDA has been involved in publicizing a large number of widespread recalls of potentially dangerous food products for salmonella and Listeria contaminants, among others. Our Pearland, TX recall attorneys for contaminated foods point out that the U.S. FDA only recently received the specific authority to issue these recalls and to urge manufacturers to conduct voluntary recalls.
The enhanced authority was given to the agency due to concerns that food products, distributed into the marketplace from a variety of sources, could cause widespread harm in a short period of time due to hidden contaminants if the federal agency couldn’t address and publicize the problems quickly on a national scale.
Though deaths and illnesses continue to result from contaminated products like the Crave Brothers cheese, the heightened risk response might have saved numerous lives. Click the link to learn more about FDA recalls of dangerous consumable products.
