Packing company issues far-reaching fruit recall

The Wawona Packing Co. has issued a voluntary recall of peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots packed

The Wawona Packing Co. has issued a voluntary recall of peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots packed between June 1 and July 12, citing potential listeria contamination.

BJ’s Wholesale Club, Sam’s Club, Costco, Trader Joe’s and Price Chopper are some of the retailers that sold fruit being recalled. Recalled products include white and yellow whole peaches, white and yellow nectarines, plums and pluots. They were shipped directly to retailers and wholesalers who resell the products.

No illnesses have been reported yet related to the recall. Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weak immune systems. Short-term symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths.
