More bad news for lovers of fruit salad, cobblers, fools, crumbles, lattice-crust pies, and, basically, summer: The California-based Wawona Packing Company has expanded its earlier recall of several types of stone fruit to include all products packed at the facility from June 1 and July 17. The update covers more produce and five days more than the previous one, and was issued out "of an abundance of caution," the company says. Wawona shipped to a variety of hubs and retail outlets including Trader Joe's, Costco, and Whole Foods, which have all issued their own recalls, and while no illnesses have yet been reported, food safety litigator Bill Marler writes that "several" of the two dozen emails and calls he's recently received have been from people who ate certain kinds of summer fruit on the recall list. Listeriosis has an incubation time of between 3 and 70 days, which can complicate diagnosis. [FDA, Related]
