Stone Fruit Recall for Possible Listeria

FSNBI got a call. A few hours too late, but I got a call and that’s pretty impressive.

Let me explain. I’ve been a bit out of touch because my brother, who lives halfway across the country from me, has been visiting. I checked out of most of my regular life and spent some wonderful days getting to know him better and watching my children fall in love with their uncle. I’ve missed all kinds of news, including the news about the bag of nectarines in my refrigerator.

In case you’ve not heard, stone fruits are being recalled nationwide for possible listeria contamination. More details follow here. It is important to note that bulk packs, individually sold fruits, and pastry made with fruit are all subject to the recall. I am pleased that my market called me to let me know; I just wish it had happened before breakfast. If they hadn’t called, I probably would have had another before I saw the news today. I’ve eaten several of these. If I complain of flu-like symptoms anytime in the next several months (because apparently it can take that long), please fell free to remind me to see my health care provider.

I will now return to my regularly scheduled activities, including sharing recalls when they come across my wire. I’d encourage you, however to check out the Food Safety News website yourself so you can be informed about the fruit in your fridge. Eat well, be well friends. Fingers crossed.

  1. I truly believe that, if this keeps up, the produce industry will their customers. That multiple food recalls are so rampant – – in these days of lax regulation, people will find other sources for their nutrition and eschew corporate growers, producers, etc. We NEVER had these kinds of recalls when I was growing up. I cried the day Reagan said “Deregulation.” To the that only means that companies will get as amoral, nasty and unfair as they can get away with being. Regulations Serve a purpose. To my mind, they make those with little or few morals a little more careful. Something to consider . . .
