Wawona Packing Company has issued a nationwide, voluntary recall of their Sweet2Eat peaches, nectarines, plums, and pluots. Listeria infection is a rare but life-threatening illness.

This is a national situation because Wawona supplies large chains like Costco, BJ’s, Trader Joe’s, Ralph’s, Walmart, Kroger, and Sam’s Club. The recall only affects the Sweet2Eat fruit packed between June 1, 2014 and July 12, 2014. Customers can get a full refund. Look at the list below for some of the most popular packaging on the recalled products (photos provided by Wawano).

Refer to the Wawano website or the FDA list for specific product codes.
