Whole Foods Market pastry recall in Midwest

In a nutshell – Whole Foods Market in 7 Midwest states is recalling some quiche, tarts, pastry made by an Illinois bakery.

From the company press release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – December 24, 2010 – Whole Foods Market announces that it is recalling items sold in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Wisconsin that came from its supplier Rolf’s Patisserie of Lincolnwood, Illinois. The recalled items have been used as an ingredient in prepared food and bakery department products or repackaged and sold under the Whole Foods Market Label. Rolf’s Patisserie has recalled all items that were made after Nov. 1, 2010.

Products produced by Rolf’s Patisserie have been connected to several outbreaks of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) food poisoning. To date no illnesses have been reported from consumers eating products sold by Whole Foods Market.

A food item contaminated with S. aureus, the bacterium responsible for producing toxins in foods, can cause nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea. The illness usually lasts for one to two days, although severe cases may last as long as three days. However, certain individuals, such as the elderly or very young, may require medical treatment for dehydration. Consumers should not eat the gingerbread houses and should dispose of them in a sealed container so that people and animals (including wild animals) cannot get access to and eat them.

All of the following Whole Food Market (WFM) Products are included in this recall:
