Jul 23 2014 - 9:21am

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 [1] after their supplier announced that the produce may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes [2], 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:

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

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 [3].

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.
