Panera Bread issues recall on cream cheese products

Local

Panera Bread is conducting a nationwide preemptive, voluntary recall of all two ounce and eight ounce cream cheese products.

At this time, there have been no reported illnesses. The recall comes out of an abundance of caution.

This recall comes after samples of one variety of two ounce 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.

The products included in the recall are these varieties, with an expiration date on or before April 2, 2018: 

Affected two ounce cream cheese varieties: Plain Cream Cheese, Reduced- Fat Plain Cream Cheese, Reduced-Fat Chive & Onion Cream Cheese, Reduced-Fat Honey Walnut Cream Cheese, Reduced-Fat Wild Blueberry Cream Cheese.

Affected eight ounce cream cheese varieties: Plain Cream Cheese, Reduced- Fat Plain Cream Cheese, Reduced-Fat Chive & Onion Cream Cheese, Reduced-Fat Honey Walnut Cream Cheese, Reduced-Fat Wild Blueberry Cream Cheese.

This recall only affects cream cheese sold in Panera Bread U.S. locations and does not affect Canadian Panera Bread locations or any other Panera Bread food products.

Consumers in possession of these products should discard them immediately and contact Panera Bread Customer Service at 1-855-6-PANERA, or visit panera.custhelp.com for a full refund. For any other questions, please visit www.panerabread.com/recall.
