Wawona Packing Spokesperson Amy Philpott Addresses Stonefruit Recall Concerns
CUTLER, CA - Amid concerns of the recent stonefruit recall, Wawona Packing spokesperson Amy Philpott is here to share laboratory results following the listeria discovery, and the company’s efforts to mitigate the situation.
Wawona Packing, a Cutler, California-based company, has voluntarily recalled certain lots of whole peaches (white and yellow), nectarines (white and yellow), plums, and pluots packed between June 1, 2014 through July 12, 2014 due to the potential of the products being contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to a press release.
Currently, no illnesses have been reported and none are expected.
Wawona is taking every measure to maintain the highest standard of quality and food safety. The company is currently working with its retail and wholesale customers to remove affected fruit and ensure that it is disposed of correctly.
