Fresh Fruit Recalled In Michigan
Last year there were a few lettuce recalls and now in 2019, it seems like it could be the year of the fruit recall. (It's only January, so we'll have to wait and see.) Anyway, if you've recently purchased some peaches, nectarines or plums from Walmart, Costco and Aldi, you'll probably want to throw them out. The fruits are being recalled due to possible listeria contamination.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the recall includes 1,727 cartons of peaches, 1,207 cartons of nectarines, and 365 cartons of plums. The Fresh Peaches, Fresh Nectarines and Fresh Plums were distributed in Michigan along with Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Virginia. The Food and Drug Administration says peaches and nectarines are sold as a bulk retail produce item with PLU sticker (PLU# 4044, 3035, 4378) showing the country of origin of Chile. The peaches, nectarines and plums sold at ALDI are packaged in a 2-pound bag with the brand Rio Duero, EAN# 7804650090281, 7804650090298, 7804650090304. The nectarines sold at Costco are packaged in a 4-pound plastic clamshell with the brand Rio Duero, EAN# 7804650090212.
