Panera Bread announced that they are conducting a nationwide preemptive, voluntary recall of all 2 oz. and 8 oz. cream cheese products sold in its U.S. bakery-cafes.

According to their notice, this recall was initiated after samples of one variety of 2 oz. cream cheese from a single production day showed a positive result for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

It's important to note that this recall was based on the finding in only one day of production and this recall is being done out of an abundance of caution.

The products included in the recall are all varieties of unexpired 2 oz. and 8 oz. cream cheese products sold in the United States with an expiration date on or before 4/2/18.

Customers in possession of these products are asked discard them immediately and call Panera Bread Customer Service at 1-855-6-PANERA from Monday through Sunday, 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM.  You can also visit visit for a full refund.
