Wawona Packing issues voluntary stone fruit recall

California-based Wawona Packing has issued a voluntary nationwide recall of whole lots of whole white and yellow peaches, white and yellow nectarines, plums and pluots. The fruit is being recalled because of potential listeria contamination.

The fruit was packed from June 1 through July 12. There have been no illnesses associated with the product, according to a company press release.

The recalled products were shipped directly to retailers and wholesalers who then resell the products. The Wawona press release said that the locations of the companies that purchased the products is not known, which prompted the nationwide recall. However, a set of photos of the affected product include two products sold at Costco and Sam’s Clubs.

Lot numbers of the affected product can be found on this FDA website.
