"Consumers warned to toss fresh fruit; N.J. supermarkets impacted by recall.
New Jersey residents are reporting that at least one area supermarket chain has called customers warning about a fresh fruit recall. Wawona Packing Company of Cutler, Calif. voluntarily recalled some lots of peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots packed between June 1 and July 12..."

"According to a CBS report today, Wawona distributes its products to Sam's Club, BJ's Wholesale Club, Trader Joe's, Stop & Shop, Whole Foods, Costco and other large food retailers."

  1. How did a supermarket get the customers phone numbers?

      Probably from their loyalty card programs and check cashing applications.

        Last week at Wegmans I bought nectarines and plums. They called me yesterday about the recall. I used my shoppers club card at checkout so they were able to trace the sale.

      2. Yes, I got a call from Wegmans as well. They tracked it through the club card. Unfortunately, the fruit is long gone - eaten by my 11 mo old. Luckily all ok

          Glad everyone's ok. So far this looks like an abundance of caution and no victims. Better than the reverse.

        2. I got the call for Wegmans Bridgewater yesterday we purchased peaches in June !!! I presume we are ok no deaths yet !!!!!

          1. Bought a box of peaches at the beginning of July from TJ's and almost finished the box! Thank goodness nothing happened!

            1. Yes, we had 4 nectarines that DH bought at WF a few days ago and sure enough they had the "Sweet 2 Eat" stickers. They are being returned today because I have an autoimmune disease and don't want to chance it. It's a good thing I just happened to read an alert on FB from one of my friends.
