North Bay Produce has recalled approximately 2,300 acres of apples due to concerns that these have Listeria. The recall affects branded bags of Red Delicious, McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Fuji, Jonathan and Jonamac apples and in non-branded white and plastic bags.
The varieties were shipped between October 16 and 21 to Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin.
The listeria bacteria primarily infects pregnant women, older adults and newborns, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. Its symptoms are similar to other food-borne illnesses, with fever and diarrhea, but in severe cases, it can cause miscarriages or stillbirths in pregnant women.
It's recommended you throw out or return apples who fit the description above.
