A Michigan supplier is recalling a number of apple varieties distributed in eight states over concerns the produce could be contaminated with Listeria.
The recalled apples were shipped between October 16 and October 21 to distributors and retailers in Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin. This is news according to a statement posted Monday by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The varieties of apples included in the recall are: McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Jonathan, Fuji, Nonamac and Red Delicious. The fruit was sold in plastic bags under the brands Great Lakes and North Bay Produce Pure Michigan and unbranded in clear plastic tote bags, white paper tote bags and individually from retailers in display trays.
Apples purchased before October 16 are not included in the recall. No illnesses linked to the recall, according to the company and FDA.
