Due to a possible bacterial contamination Panera Bread Co. voluntarily recalls certain cream cheeses sold in its U.S stores.
Sunday, the nation-wide company released an official statement saying the recall was initiated after testing from a single production day indicated the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in one variety of its 2-oz cream cheese.
The statement also included that there have been no reported illnesses but the restaurant chain still chooses to proceed with an abundance of caution prompting the pre-emptive recall.
Further tests on the chain restaurants other cream cheese products have all come back negative.
The recalled products include all of the unexpired two ozs. And 8 oz. cream cheese’s with an expiration date on or before April 2.
The recall reportedly does not affect the franchise’s Canada-based locations or any other Panera Bread products.
