Whole Foods recalling specialty cheese sold in West Palm Beach

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Whole Foods is recalling a cheese sold in one store in West Palm Beach and another in New York City because it may cause potentially fatal food poisoning.

Spokeswoman Liz Burkhart said in a news release Tuesday that the upscale Texas-based chain is recalling "Pecorino Aged Cheese in Walnut Leaves" sold in West Palm Beach, Florida, and the Bowery section of New York City. The cheese may be contaminated with listeria, a bacteria that can be fatal to young, old or frail people and cause stillbirths.

The Bowery cheese has labels beginning with the code 294239 and sell-by dates from March 3 to 8. The Florida cheese has the code 290107 and sell-by dates from Feb. 29 to March 8.

Burkhart says customers should throw out the cheese and bring in their receipt for a refund.
