Hold the schmear: Panera recalls cream cheese for potential listeria

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Below is a statement issued by Panera Bread from its corporate office in St. Louis, MO.

While there have been no reported illnesses, out of an abundance of caution, Panera Bread is conducting a nationwide preemptive, voluntary recall of all 2 oz. and 8 oz. cream cheese products sold in its U.S. bakery-cafes.  This recall was initiated after samples of one variety of 2 oz. cream cheese from a single production day showed a positive result for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes. Tests on cream cheese samples manufactured both before and after the production run in question have all come back negative.

Panera will be restocking its supply as soon as possible. You can learn more here.
