According to the FDA, Panera Bread has initiated a US nationwide recall of all 2-ounce and 8-ounce packaged Cream Cheese products sold in its US bakery-cafes. This recall was initiated after samples of one variety of 2-ounce Cream Cheese from a single production day showed a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes. Tests on Cream Cheese samples manufactured both before and after the production run in question have all come back negative.
