Costco, Trader Joes, and other grocers have issued nationwide fruit recalls after California-based Wawona Packing Company found potentially life-threatening Listeria bacteria in peaches, nectarines, plums, and pluots.

The "Sweet 2 Eat" raw fruit, baked goods, and other products containing the fruit were packed between June 1 and July 12. Specific item names, pictures, UPC codes, and more identifying information are available to customers on a special recall page on Wawona's website.

According to Fox affiliate WITI Milwaukee, the equipment associated with the possible contamination have been sanitized and retested, ensuring that the Listeria bacteria doesn't spread to any more fruit.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the fruit.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause infections resulting in severe headache, stiffness, nausea, and abdominal pain in healthy adults, and can prove fatal to small children, the elderly, or others with weakened immune systems.

The fruit should be thrown away immediately, and refunds have been offered by the grocers.

The packaging company said it doesn't know how the fruit became contaminated.

Questions about the voluntary recall can be directed to Wawona Packing at 1-888-232-9912 or WawonaPacking.com.
