(WTXL) - Panera Bread is recalling all 2 oz. and 8 oz. cream cheese products sold in its U.S. bakery-cafes because of concerns about listeria.

The company announced Sunday that tests on cream cheese samples made both before and after the production run in question have all come back negative.

The recall only affects cream cheese sold in Panera Bread United States bakery cafes and does not affect any other Panera Bread food products, the company said in a news release.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says listeria is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
