Salmonella presence leads to peach recall across North America
A Prima Wawona peach recall that’s barely a week old has already been expanded. This comes after Salmonela Enteritidis contaminated peaches sickened more than 100 people in the United States and Canada. Yellow and white peaches, both “conventional and organic”, are being recalled. The recalled peaches were sold between June and August in retailers such as Aldi, Korger, Target, and Walmart. Prima Wawona is the nation’s largest stone fruit supplier.

The recall doesn’t just apply to bagged peaches. In addition to the recalled bagged peaches mentioned above, loose peaches are being recalled. While salmonella poisoning isn’t typically especially concerning for healthy adults, it can still cause health problems. These health problems can be serious if the infected individual is a child, elderly, or has a weakened immune system.
Peaches are currently in season. So while Prima Wawona works on supplying peaches that aren’t contaminated with salmonella, there should be plenty of safe and healthy options to choose from.
