Wawona Packing Company of Cutler, Calif., is expanding its July recall of whole white and yellow peaches, white and yellow nectarines, plums and pluots.

The products have the potential of the products being contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Last month's recall covered specific lots of products packed from June 1 through July 12, 2014. The s expanded recall covers all products packed in the Wawona Packing facility from June 1, 2014, through July 17, 2014, because the company has yet to identify with scientific certainty the source of Listeria monocytogenes in the facility.

Beginning on July 18, 2014, no products have been packed at the Cutler facility. Products packed on or after that date outside that facility are not affected by this recall.

The recalled products include the following brands marketed to consumers: Sweet 2 Eat, Sweet 2 Eat Organic, Mrs. Smittcamp’s. The fruit was also packed in private label, which will be on the boxes or on the stickers placed on individual fruit.

The recalled products were shipped directly to retailers and wholesalers who resell or further distribute the products.

Consumers who have the recalled product should not consume them, but discard them and present proof of purchase or receipt if available for a refund at the store where the product was purchased.

Consumers with questions may contact Wawona Packing’s consumer information desk at 1-888-232-9912, M-F, 8am-11pm EST or Sat-Sun 8am-8pm EST.

I was notified that I had indeed purchased contaminated fruit that was consumed by several families within my family as I purchased it by the crate at Costco. A letter acknowledging fault simply does not seem to be enough even though it includes an apology. All of this fruit was consumed and there is nothing to return. Please expound on the agent that contaminated the crop, how this happened, what the symptoms could be as a result of eating this chemical or bacteria and what could the long term be. You definitely need to prepare an explanation of how this happened and take precautions of future incidents. It appears to me that you need more resolutions to equip those effected than an a mere apology if this causes illness, cancer or any side effects. I expect to hear more and to see more in the form of steps to recover damage that may be inflicted by consumption! I waited on the phone for a long time to speak to a customer service representative and heard a message over and over explaining high call volume. I would expect that these are people feeling the same way I do, vulnerable though no fault of my own. We expect to protected as the public and buying from an outfit as large and popular as Costco should be a safe experience.
