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:

The recalled ginger bread houses may have been assembled, decorated and packaged in clear plastic wrap and sold with a Whole Foods Market scale label; some scale labels also may list "Rolf's Patisserie" as part of the description. This includes all ginger bread Houses made after Nov. 1, 2010.

Products produced by Rolf's Patisserie have been connected to several outbreaks of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) food poisoning. All products that were made after Nov. 1, 2010 were recalled.

However, certain individuals, such as the elderly or very young, may require medical treatment for dehydration.

Liberté Brand Products  announced that it is recalling all Liberté Méditerranée Wild Blackberry Yogurt 6 oz code dated Sept 02 distributed in the USA because it may contain undeclared walnuts and plums. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to walnuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.

Liberté Méditérannée Wild Blackberry Yogurt - 6oz [Lot Code: Exp date 9-02-09 / SEP02 ONLY]
Liberté Méditérannée Plum & Walnut Yogurt - 6oz [Lot Code: Exp date 9-02-09 / SEP02 ONLY]
