Fruit Sold at Walmart Recalled Due to Listeria Fears


Consumers who purchased products with the affected sell-by dates are urged to throw them away. Meanwhile, Walmart is removing the products from its store shelves.

“Country Fresh takes food safety matters very seriously, stringently follows all mandated regulations and implements preventive measures designed to minimize potential risks,” the supplier said in a news release. “Country Fresh is working in close coordination with FDA in its continuing investigation to resolve the matter promptly and deeply regrets the inconvenience to our consumers and customers.”

What is listeria?

Listeriosis, the infection caused by the germ Listeria monocytogenes, primarily affects older adults, newborns, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems. It can cause fever and diarrhea, and severe cases can cause infections of the bloodstream or brain. Infections may also affect other parts of the body including bones, joints, chest and abdomen, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

No illnesses connected to the current fruit recalls have been reported.

Consumers with any questions are being asked to contact Country Fresh’s customer service line at 877-251-8399, 8 a.m to 5 p.m. CST Monday through Friday.

Apples, Grapes, Mango At Walmart Recalled For Potential Listeria

Walmart shoppers should check the dates on their fruit. Country Fresh has expanded their voluntary recall on cut fruit sold at Walmart for possible listeria contamination.

As IBT reported last week, a recall was issued for watermelon sold in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Texas at Walmart and RaceTrac. Country Fresh has now extended their voluntary recall to include more fruits in nine states.

In addition to watermelon, the recall now includes clamshell containers of “Freshness Guaranteed” cut and/or sliced apples, grapes, mangos, pineapples and cantaloupe distributed by Walmart. Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas are affected by the fruit recall.

“The recall is a precautionary measure due to a possible health risk from Listeria monocytogenes detected on equipment used in an area near where these products are packed. FDA discovered these findings during a recent inspection,” a press release reads.

The cut fruit being recalled has expiration dates between Oct. 3 and Oct. 11. To see the full list of products and UPC codes to look out for, check out the FDA website. Also, look at Walmart’s list of stores affected by the recall.

Walmart is removing any recalled products from shelves, and customers who already purchased them are advised to discard the possibly contaminated fruit.

Walmart recalls packaged fruit in 9 states for possible Listeria contamination

Oct. 5 (UPI) — Pre-packaged fruit sold by Walmart is being recalled in nine states because of possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, the FDA said.

Country Fresh, which sells products under the Walmart brand, announced a voluntary recall of packages of cut or sliced apples, grapes, mangoes, pineapples, and cantaloupe.

The fruit was shipped to Walmart grocery stores in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas, the company said.

Inspectors from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration detected traces of listeria on equipment used in an area near where the fruit was packed, a press release said.

No cases of food poisoning from listeria contamination have been reported in connection with the recalled Walmart fruit products, Country Fresh said.

Listeria is a microscopic organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and people with weakened immune systems, the FDA said. Listeria infection, called listeriosis, can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Healthy people who eat food contaminated with listeria may show short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Compared to other foodborne illnesses, listeriosis “is rare but very serious,” the FDA said on the agency’s website.

More than 90 percent of people with listeriosis are hospitalized, often in intensive care units. About 1,600 people in the United States get listeriosis each year, about 260 die and about 1,500 are hospitalized, the FDA said.

The possibly contaminated recalled products included multiple varieties of apple slices and grapes, as well as packaged chunks of mango, pineapple, cantaloupe and assorted fruit trays.

On Thursday, Country Fresh initiated a separate recall of prepackaged possibly listeria-contaminated watermelon chunks distributed at Walmart and RaceTrac gas stations, distributed between Sept. 23 through 25.

The recalled packages were labeled “best if used by” with dates between Oct. 3 and Oct. 11, 2020, the FDA said.
