As of January 28, the Food and Drug Administration has issued a press release recalling peaches, nectarines, and plums sold at Walmart, Aldi, and Costco in more than a dozen states.


The FDA has recalled all fruit distributed by Jac. Vandenberg, Inc. of Yonkers, New York, due to possible listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Consumers who return recalled fruit will get a full refund from stores and the fruit distributor urges people to email them with any questions on compliance@jacvandenberg.com.

After receiving complaints from consumers regarding wood found in the nuggets, Perdue would rather err on the side of caution and protect their customers by launching a recall.
