Massive Recall Issued for Frozen Fruit over Listeria Contamination Concern

Posted on by in News

More than a dozen frozen fruit products sold at grocery stores including Walmart and Target have been recalled due to worries over possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

frozen fruit recall reported that on Wednesday the food company SunOpta voluntarily recalled 19 frozen fruit products of its subsidiary Sunrise Growers. The products were sold at Walmart and Trader Joe’s in over 30 states, and at Target stores nationwide.

The reason for the recall is the concern over possible contamination with Listeria. The story wrote:

There’s a chance that the frozen fruit is contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which can sometimes cause serious or fatal illness in people with weaker immune systems.

The recall applies to 188,000 cases of frozen fruit sold mostly the past winter and spring. The complete list of fruit products recalled along with the grocery stores and states in which the fruits were sold is online at the FDA website.

In a parallel recall measure, the Scenic Fruit Company of Gresham, Oregon, recalled its frozen organic pineapple and frozen fruit blends containing organic pineapple over Listeria contamination concerns. The affected brands include Cadia Organic Pineapple and Trader Joe’s Organic Tropical Fruit Blend (Pineapple, Banana, Strawberry, Mango).

Contamination with Listeria monocytogenes remains an ever-present concern for food products’ safety. Last summer, dozens of cheese products were recalled in multiple states over similar concerns.
