    March 3, 2016 -- Possible listeria contamination has led to a nationwide recall of Maytag Raw Milk Blue Cheese sold at Whole Foods Markets.

    The recalled cheese was sold cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap in various weights with labels reading "Maytag Blue Raw Milk," "Maytag Blue" or "Maytag Iowa Blue Cheese," with PLU numbers beginning with with 293308 and "sell-by" dates of 1/20/2016 and 3/21/16.

    To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled cheese.

    Consumers who bought the product should throw it out and can bring their receipt to a Whole Foods Market store for a full refund. For more information, call the company at 512-477-5566, ext. 20060.
