Peaches & Nectarines Recalled at PA Walmart Stores
Listeria concerns caused a fruit recall at Pennsylvania Walmart stores.
Peaches and nectarines that were sold at Walmart were flagged by the FDA for concerns of traces of Listeria. The fruits have since been recalled.
The Listeria monocytogenes germ can cause infections, which can sometimes be fatal in children, the elderly and for people with weak immune systems.
The fruits were distributed from Chile by Jac. Vandenberg Inc. to Walmart stores and other retailers across PA. According to patch.com, "In total, 1,727 cartons of fresh Peaches and 1,207 cartons of fresh nectarines have been recalled."
The FDA is also recalling fresh plums distributed by the same company, however these shipments were not received by any PA Walmart stores.
"Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women," the FDA said via patch.com
The produce was sold in bulk so if you've purchased any of these products recently you can return it to Walmart for a full refund. The PLU sticker number is (PLU# 4044, 3035, 4378).
