4 Grocery Stores Recall Peaches & Plums

Watch out for those plums and peaches: A California packing company has recalled fruit sent to big stores around the country after internal testing revealed possible listeria contamination. The recall affects whole white and yellow peaches, white and yellow nectarines, plums, and pluots sent to stores, including Costco, Trader Joe’s, Kroger, and Wal-Mart, reports CNN. Wawona Packing Company says it’s not aware of any illnesses caused by the foodborne contaminant and it has now fully sanitized all of its facilities.

The recall also includes baked goods from Wegmans Food Markets made using peaches, plums, and nectarines, reports the Los Angeles Times. A full list can be seen here. “By taking the precautionary step of recalling product, we will minimize even the slightest risk to public health, and that is our priority,” the company said in a statement. The CDC says symptoms of listeria include short-term fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.

Not sure it will help with this but we always wash our produce with Castile soap.
