MARTIN'S announces recall of organic peaches, nectarines, some Orchard Perfect fruit

July 22, 2014

Carlisle, Pa. — Following a recall by Wawona Packing Company, GIANT Food Stores, LLC and MARTIN’S Food Markets announced it removed from sale its organic peaches and nectarines and certain Orchard Perfect peaches, nectarines and plums due to the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The following products are included in this recall:
• Organic Nectarines, PLU 94378
• Organic Peaches, PLU 94044
• Orchard Perfect Nectarines, PLU 4378 and PLU 4036
• Orchard Perfect Peaches, PLU 4044 and PLU 4038
• Orchard Perfect White Peaches, PLU 4401
• Orchard Perfect Black Plums, PLU 4040

GIANT/MARTIN’S has received no reports of illnesses to date. Listeria is a common organism found in nature.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis.

However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.

Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

Customers who purchased the fruit between June 1 and July 21, 2014 should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to GIANT/MARTIN’S for a full refund.

Consumers looking for additional information on the recall may call Wawona Packing Company at 1-888-232-9912.

In addition, customers may call GIANT/MARTIN’S Customer Service at 1-888-814-4268 for more information.
