1

If you’ve shopped for fruit recently at Costco, BJ’s, Sam’s Club, Trader Joe’s or other local supermarkets, put down that peach. There’s a peach recall.

According to the FDA, Wawona Packing Company of Cutler, California, is voluntarily recalling certain lots of white and yellow peaches and nectarines, plums and pluots packed between June 1 through July 12 due to a potential listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Wawona Packing Co. recalls fresh peaches, plums, nectarines and pluots

The fruit was shipped directly to wholesalers, so Wawona Packing Company can’t determine which retail stores are selling it. They responded with a nationwide recall.

Healthy people affected by listeria may suffer short-term symptoms like high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. The bacteria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. No illnesses have been reported.
