Whole foods supermarket is recalling “Crave Brothers Les Freres” cheese because it may be contaminated with “Listeria monocytogenes”. It was sold in 30 states including Washington, D.C under names including “Les Freres” and “Crave Brothers Les Freres.”

The recall was issued after an outbreak of bacterial infection made many sick in several states and killed at least one. “Listeria monocytogenes” can lead to severe illness for women who are pregnant or people who have weakened immune systems.

The company is posting signs in its stores to inform customers about the recall.
