Listeria Found in Frozen Fruit Products at Major Retailers

Are you a fan of frozen fruit blends? Well, you might want to check your freezer because major retailers have issued a recall on certain frozen fruit products over potential contamination with listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

Sunrise Growers is the supplier of the recalled products, which were sold at Walmart, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Target, Aldi, and AWG. The affected products include bags of frozen pineapple, cherries, and tropical fruit blends with a best-by date of February 2024 or later.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can cause serious illness, and in some cases, even death. The most common symptoms of listeriosis are fever and muscle aches, which may be accompanied by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.

If you have purchased any of the recalled products, the FDA advises you not to consume them and to return them to the place of purchase for a refund. You should also dispose of the product properly if you have them in your freezer.

This is the second major recall of frozen fruit products in recent months. In February, Fresh Idemation Food Group recalled more than 400 frozen food products, including breakfast sandwiches, muffins, and fruit cups, due to possible listeria contamination.

If you’re worried about your health, it’s best to contact your doctor immediately. But how do you know if you have the recalled products? Here are some steps to check:

1. Look for the Sunrose Growers logo on the package.

2. Check the best-by date. The recalled products have a best-by date of February 2024 or later.

3. If you have any of the recalled products, do not consume them. Return the items to the store where you purchased them for a refund.

It’s always important to stay aware of product recalls and take the necessary precautions to ensure your safety. Stay safe, and don’t forget to check your freezer!
