Whole Foods has recalled a type of cheese called Dorset over concerns of a possible listeria contamination.
The affected product is wrapped in plastic with a Whole Foods Market scale label and a sell-by date of October 30.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail, or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of infection include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
Whole Foods said Monday that customers who purchased the cheese can return it to their local Whole Foods store with a receipt for a refund.
