This major recall declared by the chain needs to reach public in the respective areas as soon as possible.


As reported in an article published by Faith Family America, the renowned grocery chain, Whole Foods Market, recently issued a product recall when a possibly fatal discovery was made.

The chain voluntarily recalled the Explorateur French Triple Crème cheese from nine stores situated in New Mexico, Arkansas, Texas, Illinois, New Jersey and Connecticut out of caution.
