BATESVILLE — A company in California that sells fruit has issued a voluntary nationwide recall of whole peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots due to a potential contamination of Listeria.
Wowona Packing Company is recalling the fruit packaged between June 1 and July 12.
Local Kroger stores have issued a recall of the fruit, along with Walmart, Costco and Trader Joe’s.
“We are aware of no illnesses related to the consumption of these products,” said Brent Smittcamp, President of Wawona Packing Co. “By taking the precautionary step of recalling product, we will minimize even the slightest risk to public health, and that is our priority.”
Listeria can cause serious infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthier individuals could suffer from a flu-like sickness.
