Peaches hit the recall list due to possible salmonella contamination

Oh cruel summer, is there no end to your punishment? Right on the heels of the Great Onion Recall, the season’s star stone fruit has also been linked to a multi-state outbreak of salmonella. Peaches from California-based supplier Wawona are being recalled as the CDC reports 68 cases of salmonella across nine states, as of August 19. Loose/bulk peaches bought from the following stores and brands from June 1 through August 3, and June 1 through August 19 for bagged, should be thrown out:

  • Wawona Peaches
  • Wawona Organic Peaches
  • Prima Peaches
  • Organic Marketside Peaches
  • Aldi
  • Target
  • Kroger (including affiliated retailers Jay-C, King Soopers, City Market, Fry’s, Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Foods Co., and Smiths)
  • Walmart
  • Sam’s Club
  • Wegmans (also includes in-store bakery items that contain fresh peaches)

Potentially contaminated surfaces should be thoroughly sanitized. For specific product codes and up-to-date information, see the outbreak announcements on the websites for the FDA and the CDC.
