Fruit recall 2014

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Fruit packaged by the Wawona Packing Company out of Cutler, California and sold at stores across the country is being voluntarily recalled.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says there is a possibility the recalled products may be contaminated with listeria. No illnesses have been linked to the recall which was announced on Monday, according to company officials.

Certain lots of peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots sold at Trader Joe's, Costco, Sam's Club and Fresh Direct could be contaminated with the dangerous food-borne pathogen.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says symptoms from listeria include fever and muscle aches, sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. It can cause deadly infections in young children, frail or elderly people and those with compromised immune systems. 

Pregnant women are also at risk. Symptoms can occur up to two months after contamination, according to Dr. Roshini Raj, a gastroenterologist.

The lots of fruit possibly contaminated were sold in stores June 1- July 12.

"By taking the precautionary step of recalling product, we will minimize even the slightest risk to public health, and that is our priority," said President Brett Smittcamp.

Lot numbers, dates sold and photos of the recalled fruit can be found online at WawonaPacking.com

Company officials add anyone who has the recalled products should not consume them and throw them out.

Anyone with questions can contact Wawona Packing at 888-232-9912, Monday- Friday, 8 am - 5 pm ET.
