Wegmans Recalling Certain Fruits Because of Listeria Contamination

BRIDGEWATER, NJ - 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, the release said, 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, 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.
