AUSTIN, TX -- Whole Foods Market has recalled made-in-store items prepared with organic and conventional stone fruit, including peaches, nectarines, and plums from Wawona Packing Co. because of possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.  

Read/download the list of items and states where they were sold.

No illnesses have been reported so far.

The items were sold between June 1st and July 21st and company officials stress not all items or products were sold in all stores.

Signs are posted in Whole Foods Market stores to notify customers of the recall.  There is a Whole Foods store in Virginia Beach. 

If you bought a recalled product, Whole Foods Market says discard it and bring in your receipt for a full refund.

Consumers with questions can call 512-477-5566, extension 20060, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Daylight Time.

The FDA says listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
