FDA Lists Stores Where Listeria Contaminated Peaches Were Sold

The FDA has listed the stores where possibly Listeria contaminated peaches by HMC Farms and Signature Farms were sold. There is a Listeria monocytogenes outbreak linked to some of these products, with at least 11 sick and one death in seven states. Ill persons live in California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, and Ohio.

FDA Lists Stores Where Listeria Contaminated Peaches Were Sold

The recalled, conventionally grown peaches, plums, and nectarines were sold at the retail level from May 1, 2022 through November 15, 2022 and from May 1, 2023 through November 15, 2023. While these fruits are no longer available for sale, some people most likely froze them for later use. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria are not destroyed by freezing temperatures, so these frozen fruits are not safe to eat.

The individual pieces of fruit have PLU stickers on the front that is labeled USA-E-U, with these numbers:

Yellow peach: 4044 or 4038

White peach: 4401

Yellow nectarine: 4036 or 4378

White nectarine: 3035

Red plum: 4042

Black plum: 4040

The bags of fruit are sold in HMC Farms branded bags. Signature Farms peaches and nectarines are also recalled. They were sold in Signature Farms branded bags and labeled with the number 6359 printed on a white sticker attached to the bag.

These fruits may also have been relabeled and sold to other manufacturers who could have frozen them or relabeled the fruit to see under another brand.
