Recall Alert: Local Stores Busy With Customers Returning Fruit
DAYTON -- Local stores are working to notify customers after some fruit is recalled.
Strawberries are front and center at Dorothy Lane Market this week, but it was supposed to be peaches.
"We got a phone call from the distributor that there could be a possible Listeria scare," explained Jo Ann Potts, the Customer Resource Director at Dorothy Lane Market.
As of Saturday, the only kind DLM stocked were the now-recalled "Sweet 2 Eat" peaches.
"We've had quite a few peaches brought back... the only thing we can do with them is refund your money and throw them away," said Potts.
The Dorothy Lane "Sweet 2 Eat" peaches were only on shelves from July 12th through the 19th. Other affected stores in our area include Walmart, Sams Club, BJs, Kroger, and Trader Joe's. Those peaches, plums, nectarines or pluots were packed and distributed between June 1 and July 12 and included the same label "Sweet 2 Eat."
A routine inspection at the distributor's plant uncovered a trace of Listeria, so the Wiwona Packing Company out of california voluntarily recalled the fruit.
So far, there are no reported illnesses.
"I wasn't worried, it's a voluntary recall, and I know they just have the public's interest at heart," said Sarah Jobe, a regular DLM shopper.
"Peaches? I've had four this week," Joe Miner said. "I'm fine, so, it's working for me."
Miner says he plans to finish the fifth one in his fridge; but health officials say you really should heed the warnings, even with a low risk of contamination.
Listeria is a dangerous bacteria for people with weakened immune systems, and for young children, the elderly and pregnant women. It can take weeks for it to show - and get checked out if you have any irregular breathing, fever, vomiting, and dehydration.
"Make sure that when you buy your fruit and vegetables, always wash it before you eat it. If you do that, that kind of protects you," said Bill Wharton with Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County. "If you have something where you think something else may have contaminated it, for just general peace of mind, throw it out. It's that old phrase, when in doubt, throw it out."
