A warning has been sent out to all shopper who recently purchased California nectarines, peaches, plums or pluots lately, even the organic kind.
The Wawona Packing Co. in Cutler, California, announced late last week it's expanding a voluntary recall of its products.
The recall on July 18, 2014 covered specific lots of products packed from June 1 through July 12, 2014. The recall is expanding to cover all products packed in the Wawona Packing Company facility from June 1, 2014 through July 17, 2014 because they haven't found the source of Listeria bacteria in the facility.
The company voluntarily expanded that recall Thursday to include the same items packed at the Cutler facility from June 1 to July 17 since it hasn't been able to identify the source of listeria monocytogenes.
The products recalled included brands that are marketed to the consumers such as Sweet 2 Eat Organic, Sweet 2 Eat, Mrs. Smittcamp's as well as others that are packed under private labels, said a statement released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The FDA posted photos on its website of the packaged fruit under recall.

However, infections during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn."
