Whole Foods Recalls Cheeses Over E.Coli and Listeria Fears
LOS ANGELES ( KTLA) -- Whole Foods Market, which specializes in organic and healthy-lifestyle foods, is recalling seven kinds of cheese because listeria and E. coli bacteria were discovered in the products.

The cheeses are Sage Cheddar, Silver Mountain Cheddar, Chipotle Cheddar, Premium Block Cheddar, Premium White Chunk Cheddar, Chipotle Chunk Cheddar and White Black Wax Cheddar.

They were sold in its stores in California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada and Arizona.

The tainted cheeses are packaged in clear plastic wrap and sold with a "Distributed by Whole Foods Market" sticker.

They are part of a factorywide recall announced by Bravo Farms.

Last week that artisan cheesemaker, which specializes in raw milk cheese, pulled all of its shipments after California officials found listeria at its plant in Traver, Calif.

At the beginning of this month, Bravo Farms recalled its Dutch Style Gouda in a multi-state outbreak of E. coli.

Since mid-October, 38 people in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico have been sickened in the E. coli outbreak linked to the gouda.

The outbreak includes 15 hospitalizations and one case of kidney failure.
