MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) -

The Alabama Department of Agriculture and food safety inspectors are conducting checks on fresh, whole peaches, plums, nectarines, and pluots due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

A company in California has voluntarily recalled certain lots of those fruits packed between June 1 and July 12 due to the potential contamination. The company has notified retailers of the recall.

No other products have been impacted and no illnesses have been reported in connection to this recall, according to state officials.

Anyone who has the recalled products in their possession should not eat them and should discard them. Consumers with questions may contact Wawona Packing at 1-888-232-9912, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m to 5 p.m. EST or visit www.wawonapacking.com for a copy of this press release.
