California Fruit Recalled Across Canada over Listeria Risk

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 16:29:36 +0000

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The Canadian Food Inspection Agency released a food recall warning Tuesday for Sweet 2 Eat brand fruit products imported from California because of concerns about a possible listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The recalled fruits include whole peaches, plums, nectarines and pluots.

The CIFA urges consumers to throw out the potentially contaminated fruit or return it to the store they were purchased from.

If consumers eat fruit contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, they can suffer from symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.

The Wawona Packing Co. released a statement about the recall, quoting company President Brent Smittcamp as saying, "We are aware of no illnesses related to the consumption of these products, by taking the precautionary step of recalling product, we will minimize even the slightest risk to public health, and that is our priority."
