Panera recalls cream cheese over Listeria fears

Panera cream cheese recall

Panera Bread has recalled all of its cream cheese products sold in its bakery-cafes after a sample tested positive for listeria. After one sample taken from a cream cheese package tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes bacteria, Panera Bread made a decision to remove all cream cheese from locations to ensure the safety of their customers. Tests on samples manufactured both before and after the compromised production run have all come back negative, and no illnesses have been reported at this time. The company says the recall is pre-emptive.

Still, "all varieties of unexpired 2 [ounce] and 8 [ounce] cream cheese with an expiration date on or before 4/2/18 were recalled out of an abundance of caution".

For now, the recall affects Panera Bread locations in the US only. "You should expect nothing less from Panera". It doesn't affect the Panera Bread Canadian bakery cafes or any other Panera Bread food products.

An estimated 1,600 people get listeriosis each year, and about 260 people die. Exposure to the bacteria can cause fever and diarrhea, with particularly unsafe symptoms for pregnant women and unborn children.

Affected varieties include plain, reduced-fat plain, reduced-fat chive & onion, reduced-fat honey walnut, and reduced-fat wild blueberry.

According to the press release, the organism found in the samples can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.

Customers are encouraged to contact customer service by phone at 1-855-6-PANERA or online at panera.custhelp.com for a full refund.
