Summer Fruit Supplied to Many Local Retailers Recalled Due to Potential Health Risk

July 22, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Wawona Packing Co. in Cutler, Calif., has recalled specific lots of organic and non-organic whole white and yellow peaches, white and yellow nectarines, plums and pluots over concerns of possible listeria contamination. The products were packaged between June 1 and July 12. 
 
The company distributes their products to Sam's Club, BJ's Wholesale Club, Trader Joe's, Stop & Shop, Whole Foods, Costco and a number of other large food retailers.
 
 
As a result of the recall, Wegman's recalled a number of baked goods prepared in the store that contained the possibly contaminated fruits as well.
 
Wegmans announced a voluntary recall of nectarines, plums and peaches because of a possible contamination with the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes, according to a release.

 
Listeria is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, senior citizens and those with weakened immune systems.
 
The release said the grocer at Wegmans reported that organic and non-organic fruit was supplied by Wawona Packaging Company of California under the 'Sweet2Eat' brand, and routine testing showed potential contamination. Those who purchased the fruit between June 1 and July 20, 2014 should discard it immediately and visit the service desk at a Wegmans location for a full refund.
 
The recall also includes Wegmans bakery products that could contain fresh peaches, nectarines and plums in multiple varieties and sizes. Those baked goods could also contain fruit supplies by Wawona Packaging Company.
 
Additional information on the fruit items and bakery products involved in the recall is available at the Wegmans website at www.wegmans.com.
 
The FDA is asking anyone who purchased the recalled products to not eat them, and throw them away. Consumers with questions can contact Wawona Packing Co. at 1-888-232-9912.

This all-encompassing theory would tie together general relativity (large scale and high mass galaxies, stars, etc), quantum theory (quantum mechanics, quarks, atoms, subatomic particles), and Newtonian physics (gravity on small bodies, gas laws, electromagnetism) to ...
