Fresh fruit sold nationwide via a California-based distributor is being recalled due to possible Listeria contamination.
Wawona Packing Co. has recalled peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots packed between June 1 and July 12 and sold at Trader Joe’s, Sam’s Club, BJ’s WholeSale Club, Costco and other nationwide retailers.
The company issued the voluntary recall after testing discovered traces of the bacteria that could be life-threatening to patients with weakened immune systems.
The recalled products were shipped to retailers and wholesalers. Because the company does not know the locations of the companies that purchased the products, a nationwide recall has been issued.
As of July 20, no illnesses have been linked to this recall.
Anyone who bought the fruit should throw it away immediately. Customers can direct their questions to Wawona Packing at 1-888-232-9912, or visit www.wawonapacking.com.
