FRUIT RECALL: ATTENTION

California-based Wawona Packing Co. issued a voluntary recall on July 19 for certain types of peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots that were packaged and shipped between June 1 and July 12. The fruit is being recalled for possible listeria contamination, though no illnesses have been reported to date, the company said on its website.

 

A Recall has been done on fresh fruits! So…. Be careful around peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots. These potentially contaminated fruits may be distributed at major chains such as BJ’s, Costco, Trader Joe’s, Sam’s Club and Whole Foods which have been cited. Please read the following article, and if you have been exposed, please be aware and throw out these foods for your safety.

 

Symptoms typically appear within a month or two of consuming contaminated materials. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says listeria can be treated with antibiotics and urges consumers to seek treatment if they begin exhibiting symptoms after eating possibly tainted foods.

 

SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND AWARE: THIS CAN BE SERIOUS.
