A massive recall has just hit the nation. Now, the FDA has issued a serious warning about a possible deadly contamination involving some very popular food products.
According to reports, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that Jac. Vandenberg is recalling 1,727 cartons of peaches, 1,207 cartons of nectarines and 365 cartons of plums because of possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
The products in question were sold at Aldi, Costco, Fairway Market, Hannaford, Market Basket, and Walmart nationwide. The fruits were reportedly shipped to 18 different states.
"Some of the peaches and nectarines were sold as bulk items and have a PLU sticker with the numbers 4044, 3035 or 4378. The Aldi peaches and plums were sold in two-pound bags with brand Rio Duero, EAN numbers 7804650090281, 7804650090298 or 7804650090304.
