Brookshire Grocery recalls peaches over listeria concerns

Brookshire Grocery Co. has issued a recall of yellow flesh peaches sold in bulk displays over concerns for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The peaches were shipped to stores from April 15-24, so none of the fresh fruit is

expected to be in households, but the company issued the recall in case consumers froze or preserved them. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall, according to a news release posted May 25 on the Food and Drug Administration’s recall webpage.

Brookshire Grocery, Tyler, Texas, reported the yellow flesh peaches were shipped to Brookshire’s, Super 1 Foods, Spring Market, and FRESH by Brookshire’s retail stores in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas.

The Yellow Flesh Peaches are a product of Chile and may have a Price Look-up sticker with the words “CHILE” and “TREE RIPE YELLOW PEACH” and the numeral 4044. Potentially affected product was received from a distributor and shipped to store locations.

The recall is a result of random sampling conducted at Brookshire’s distribution center by the Texas Department of State Health Services after potentially affected product was shipped to stores and which revealed a positive test for Listeria monocytogenes.  Brookshire Grocery Company immediately disposed of the affected product at the distribution center, issued a recall notice to its stores, and implemented sanitation procedures at all retail and affected locations.
