Pennsylvania Recalls Listeria Apple Wedges

Appeeling-Fruit-apple-package-225x300Appeeling Fruit Inc. of Dauberville, PA, is voluntarily recalling a limited number of consumer packages of fresh sliced apples with Best-if-Used-by dates of 09/14/15 and 09/21/15 due to the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

To date, health authorities have not linked any illnesses to this recall. No other products are affected by this recall.

The recalled product was shipped to retail distribution centers, wholesalers, and foodservice customers in the states of Florida, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania between Aug. 31 and Sept. 2, 2015.

Consumers can identify the recalled consumer products by the brand, UPC codes, and Best-if-Used-by dates provided in the table below.

The recall is being initiated after the company was informed that an environmental sample taken in the production facility as part of a routine sampling program tested positive for the bacteria. None of the final product tested positive, and subsequent test results from the facility have been negative.
