Potential Listeria Contamination Leads To Apples Recall
A county health department in Illinois says a Michigan company voluntarily is recalling nearly 2,300 cases of apples due to potential listeria contamination. Some of the apples were shipped to North Carolina.
Kane County health officials say Tuesday that North Bay Produce of Traverse City also is recalling two bulk bins of apples.
Recalled varieties include McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Jonathan, Fuji, Jonamac and Red Delicious. The recalled apples were shipped Oct. 16-21 to wholesalers, retailers and brokers in Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.
In North Carolina, Red Delicious apples being recalled were delivered to two sites in Granville County on Oct. 21.
They were sold in plastic bags under Great Lakes and North Bay Produce Pure Michigan brands. They also were sold unbranded in clear plastic bags, white paper tote bags, and individually from retail displays.
Listeria usually causes mild illness but can be dangerous to pregnant women or people with weak immune systems.
