Fruits Bought At Albertsons In El Paso Are Part Of A Nationwide Recall – Find Out Which Ones You Shouldn’t Be Eating
If you bought whole peaches (white and yellow), nectarines (white and yellow), plums, or pluots packed between June 1, 2014 through July 12, 2014, at Albertsons, you should not eat them. The company that packed those fruits is recalling specific lot numbers because they might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
No one has reported becoming sick from the fruits in question, but Wawona Packing has told the stores that carry their fruits of the recall and possible contamination. There are also products made with these possibly contaminated fruits that you should know about and discard.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. You might get short-term symptoms like high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, but the Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
