Wawona Packing previously recalled many of their fruit products due to concerns over Listeria contamination, and has now expanded that recall to white and yellow peaches, white and yellow nectarines, plums and pluots that were packed from June 1, 2014 through July 17, 2014.

The recall is made more difficult because the fruits are sold in many chain stores such as Sam's, Trader Joe's, CostCo, BJ's, and are marketed under many brand names.

The recalled products include the following brands marketed to consumers: Sweet 2 Eat, Sweet 2 Eat Organic, Mrs. Smittcamp’s, and are also packed in private labels. These brands will be on the boxes or on the stickers placed on individual fruit. Anyone who has the recalled products in their possession should not consume them and should discard them.

- FDA Recall

Although the Listeria contamination has not been found in any subsequent test of the fruit, the recall is being expanded in an abundance of caution as the source has not been identified.
