Fresh peaches and nectarines sold at Walmart stores have been recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Jac. Vandenberg, Inc. of Yonkers, New York, has recalled peaches, nectarines, and plums sold in 18 states, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
The recalled plums were not sold in Pennsylvania.
The peaches and nectarines were sold as a bulk retail produce item with the PLU numbers 4044, 3035, 4378 on a sticker. People should return the recalled products to the store.
The FDA said routine sampling revealed the bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
No illnesses have been reported.
