Recall announced after listeria fears

Fruit sold at Trader Joe's, Costco and Kroger is listed as part of a new food recall.

Wawona Packing, a produce company based in Cutler, California, is voluntarily recalling certain lots of whole peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots. The fruit could be contaminated with listeria, the company said.

The lots involved in the recall were packed between June 1 and July 12. They are sold at many wholesalers and retailers such as Kroger, Costco and Trader Joe's.

The company said it is not aware of any illnesses thus far, but is urging customers to dispose of potentially tainted fruit.

Listeria can affect everyone

Listeria can cause serious, potentially fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weak immune systems. It is known to trigger miscarriages and still births in pregnant women. It affects healthy people too, but only with temporary symptoms including high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
