Trader Joe's Fruit Recall 2014

Fruit Recall Expands to Include Trader Joe's, Walmart, Kroger, Costco, and More

Shopped for fruit recently? You may want to take a look through your fridge. Trader Joe's, Walmart (including Walmart and Sam's Club stores), Kroger, Costco, Wegman's, Ralphs, and Food 4 Less are recalling a variety of fruit after their supplier announced that the produce may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a bug that is particularly dangerous to children and pregnant women. Though there have been no reports of food-related illness, the stores are proceeding with caution.

The recall includes the following fruit items with "SWEET 2 EAT" stickers on them, sold individually between June 2 and July 18:

  • Organic white nectarine
  • Organic yellow nectarine
  • White nectarine
  • Yellow nectarine
  • Organic yellow peach
  • White peach
  • Yellow peach
  • Organic dapple dandy plumcot
  • Plum

It also includes the following 4-pound boxes of fruit sold between June 2 and July 19:

  • Trader Joe's peaches 4-pound box
  • Trader Joe's nectarines 4-pound box

And Wegman's bakery and packaged products that may contain the recalled stone fruits — like peach pie and peach salsa. See the full list of those bakery items here.

Those who have purchased the contaminated produce have been told to throw out the items or return them to their place of purchase for a full refund. Customers with questions can call Wawona Packaging at 1-888-232-9912 from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday.

Egm, I always, automatically, throw some boiling water over my fruit. Old habit, my dad taught me, growing up in aq vilalge, with many bugs, and intestinal worms danger.

Yes, let's wait to tell people that their fruit might be contaminated until several days AFTER they have bought and eaten said fruit. When news travels this slow, why isn't it just called the 'olds' instead?
