A voluntary recall has been issued of specific frozen fruit products due to the potential of being contaminated with Listeria.

From the USDA:

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Any consumers concerned about an illness should contact a physician.

The frozen fruit has been sold at various locations throughout the U.S, including Walmart, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Target.

To date, there have been no illnesses associated with this voluntary recall.
