U.S.: North Bay Produce recalls fresh apples over listeria fears
Michigan-based North Bay Produce is voluntarily recalling fresh apples over concerns they might be contaminated with Listeria.
The FDA said the company has recalled 2,297 cases and two bulk bins of fresh apples.
Varieties include McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Jonathan, Fuji, Jonamac and Red Delicious apples, the FDA said.
The recalled fruit was sold in plastic bags under the brands Great Lakes and North Bay Produce Pure Michigan. They were also sold in unbranded tote bags and individually from retailers display trays.
The recalled apples were shipped between Oct 16 - 21, 2019 from one North Bay facility to wholesalers, retailers and brokers in Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.
Apples purchased at retail prior to Oct. 16 are not affected by this recall, and no other North Bay Produce products are affected by this recall.
The FDA says it is not currently aware of any illnesses linked by health officials to this recall.
The recall was initiated as a result of a finished product test that indicated the presence of the organism.
