Throw these mf-ing peaches out

Fresno, California produce company Prima® Wawona is recalling all of its "bulk/loose peaches distributed and sold from June 1 through August 3 and its bagged Wawona and Wawona Organic peaches distributed and sold from June 1 through August 19" for possible salmonella contamination, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration

The Centers for Disease Control is currently investigating an outbreak of 68 cases of salmonella poisoning across nine states that appear to be tied to the peaches.

If you purchased bagged peaches, here are the contaminated or affected product codes you need to be looking for on the bottom of the bag:

  • Wawona Peaches – 033383322001
  • Wawona Organic Peaches – 849315000400
  • Prima® Peaches – 766342325903
  • Organic Marketside Peaches – 849315000400
  • Kroger Peaches – 011110181749
  • Wegmans Peaches – 077890490488

And if you purchased loose peaches, look for these PLU numbers on that little sticker on the fruit: 4037, 4038, 4044, 4401, 94037, 94038, 94044, 94401.  

The FDA says, "Please note that not all peaches with these PLU codes are supplied by Prima Wawona. If you are unsure of the brand or variety of your loose peaches, you can contact your retailer or supplier, or throw them out."

Basically, toss your peaches. Do not eat.

Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. If an infection is severe, additional symptoms can include high fever, aches, headaches, lethargy, a rash and blood in your urine or stool. The infection can be fatal so you should call your doctor if you've eaten a peach and develop symptoms of salmonella poisoning.
