Reason For Recall Whole Foods Market announces that it is recalling Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese KY BL sold in its Louisville, KY store and Blue Kentucky Rose Kenny's cheese sold in its Nashville, TN store. These cheeses are being recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. To date, no illnesses have been reported. This recall is in response to a recall by Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese of Austin, Kentucky.
