FDA Recalls Peaches, Nectarines and Plums Sold at Walmart, Aldi and Costco
Since peach, nectarine and plum season usually occurs between May and September, you’re hopefully not buying too many of the sweet summery fruits this time of year. But if you are, you better read this.
The below chart outlines the 1,727 cartons of fresh peaches, 1,207 cartons of fresh nectarines and 365 cartons of fresh plums that were recalled and which stores they were sold at:
|ALDI||Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia||Nectarines, Peaches, Plums|
|Fairway Market||New York||Nectarines, Peaches|
|Market Basket||Massachusetts||Nectarines, Peaches|
|Walmart||Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia||Nectarines (MD, NJ, NY, PA, VA, WV), Peaches (KY, NJ, NY, OH, PA, WV)|
You can also check the PLU sticker on the fruits to learn which is part of the recall. The peaches and nectarines were sold separately in bulk, and have a sticker of 4044, 3035 and 4378 and list Chile as the country of origin.
For the Aldi recalls, the fruits were sold in bags from Rio Duero with EAN numbers of 7804650090281, 7804650090298, 7804650090304.
Costco’s nectarines were sold in pound plastic clamshells also under the Rio Duero and contain an EAN number 7804650090212.
Thankfully no illnesses have been reported as of yet, so let’s keep the streak going. It’s important to get rid of any peaches, nectarines or plums if you bought them at the above stores.
You can either dispose of the fruits or return them to your retailer you purchased them at for a full refund.
