Wawona Packing Co. is voluntarily recalling peaches, nectarines, plums, and pluots that were packed at its Cutler, California, warehouses between June 1 and July 11th because of the belief the products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes per CNN.

Costco, Trader Joes, and the Walmart Corp. – which operates both Walmart and Sam’s Club stores, have all posted notices about the fruit recall on their websites to make consumers aware. The fruit recall is nationwide, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Internal testing at Wawona revealed the potential Listeria contamination, the FDA says. The facility was shut down as soon as this was revealed and sanitized; however subsequent tests have been negative for the food-borne illness.

“We are aware of no illnesses related to the consumption of these products,” Wawona President Brent Smittcamp said in a statement. “By taking the precautionary step of recalling product, we will minimize even the slightest risk to public health, and that is our priority.”

Trader Joe’s has recommended to its customers not to eat any of these stone fruits – also known as fruits with large pits – and to return them to a nearby store for a full refund.

In addition, Wegmans Food Markets Inc. have recalled several of its baked goods that contain fruit from Wawona Packign Co. These baked goods include cakes, pies, tarts, and other pastries.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that causes Listeriosis. The most common symptoms include gastrointestinal issues, fever and muscle aches, Pregnant women, infants, older adults and people with a weakened immune system are especially at risk for a more serious infection, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC estimates about 1,600 illnesses and 260 deaths are linked to Listeriosis each year in the United States.
