Florida’s Marjon Specialty Foods Inc., based in Plant City, has recalled 119 cases of sliced apples after a sample tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
Recalled are apples packaged in 2 oz. single serving packages by Marjon Specialty Foods Inc. with used by dates of 7-20-10 and 7-21-10.
The recalled apples were sold to three Florida food service distributors for further sales to institutional and food service establishments. Those buyers may in turn have removed the apples from their original package. In a statement Marjon claims those products have been successfully accounted for and destroyed by customers.
Production was briefly halted by Marjon, which is working with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The Agriculture Department conducted an inspection on July 6 and cleared Marjon to resume production.
