Wegmans,Trader Joe’s, Costco and Sams Club Are Recalling Fruits Amidst Listeria Concerns
This is the time of the year when we eat more fruits and vegetables, but hold on for a minute. If you've just bought fruit from a Wegman's, Trader Joe's, Costco, or a Sam's Club, you should find out if it's part of a fruit recall.
Tech Times tells us:
The Wawona Packing Company of California is recalling peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots that maybe potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytognes. They were sold at the two wholesale clubs and food market. While no illness has yet been reported, consumers are being urged to not eat the fruit as Listeria can bring on serious illness and even potentially death.
Anyone with a weak immune system like children, seniors and women who are expecting are the ones at the most risk of contracting Listeria. How do you know if you're infected? Symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea, severe headache, diarrhea and a high fever.
Tech Times also reports:
The food markets have been contacted, according to Wawona, and the produce is being pulled from the shelves. The recall was trigged by an internal test result. According to the Food and Drug Administration, the factory packing lines have been shuttered and equipment has been replaced.
