October 14, 2015: Del Monte Fresh Produce – Listeria Apple Recall

Listeria Apple Recall Announcement – On October 15, 2015, Granny Smith green apples from Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc., were been recalled because of possible contamination with the foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes.

Information About Listeria

Listeria infection, or listeriosis, is a serious and sometimes fatal foodborne illness caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there are about 880 confirmed cases of listeriosis in the U.S. each year.

Listeriosis affects primarily pregnant women (and sometimes their developing fetuses), newborns, older adults, and adults with weakened immune systems. However, persons without these risk factors can also be affected. If a pregnant woman experiences a Listeria infection, bacteria may cross the placenta causing a miscarriage, premature delivery, still birth, or an infection in the new born.
