What to Do If You Have a Recalled Food Product


(CNN) — If you’ve picked up fruit at Costco, Trader Joe’s or Walmart… keep reading.

Wawona Packing Co. is voluntarily recalling peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots that were packed at its Cutler, California,  warehouses between June 1 and July 12. The products may be contaminated with Listeria.

This is a nationwide recall with some of the fruit being shipped right here to Texas, according to the FDA.

Internal testing at Wawona revealed the potential Listeria contamination, the FDA says. The facility was shut down and sanitized; subsequent tests have been negative for the food-borne illness.

“We are aware of no illnesses related to the consumption of these products,” Wawona President Brent Smittcamp said in a statement. “By taking the precautionary step of recalling product, we will minimize even the slightest risk to public health, and that is our priority.”

Trader Joe’s has urged customers not to eat any of these stone fruits — meaning fruits with large pits — and to return them to a nearby store for a full refund.
