Trader Joe’s Issues Product Recall For Fruit
Grocery store chain Trader Joe’s is recalling peaches, plums and nectarines for possible Listeria contamination. The fruit was sold individually and in four pound boxes between June 2 and July 19.
According to the company’s press release, no one has reported any illness from eating the fruit, but the products were pulled once the supplier indicated contamination may have occurred.
Listeria can cause fever, muscle aches and gastrointestinal problems. Young children, pregnant women, people with compromised immune systems and the elderly are particularly at risk from infection.
Customers should dispose of the fruit or contact the store for a refund. Trader Joe’s has three locations in the Triangle, including one in Chapel Hill.
