Panera Bread Recalls Cream Cheese Due to Possible Listeria Contamination

Panera Bread is recalling their cream cheese due to a possible listeria contamination. The recall was issued out of precaution after a sample of their cream cheese tested positive for listeria. The testing was done at random on one production day at one warehouse. 

Panera Bread is recalling all cream cheese with a best by date of April 2018. They have also stopped all production in the warehouse that the contaminated cream cheese was produced. 

Consumers who may have the recalled cream cheese at home, are urged not to eat it and to throw it away.

So far there have been no reports of illness due to the consumption of these products.
