(RTTNews) - Country Fresh has recalled various cut and sliced fruits distributed mainly by Walmart, citing potential health risk from Listeria monocytogenes, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

In the initial recall, a limited quantity of watermelon chunks from select stores were included. These items were shipped directly to Walmart and RaceTrac's retail stores located in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Texas. The recalled products were distributed from September 23 to 25, with best-if-used by dates of October 2, 3, and 4.

Country Fresh further extended the recall to include various containers of "Freshness Guaranteed "cut and/or sliced apples, grapes, mangos, pineapples and cantaloupe distributed by Walmart. These items shipped directly to Walmart retail distribution centers in nine states. The "best if used by" dates are between October 3 and October 11

All the affected products were packaged in various size clam shell containers. The FDA, during a recent inspection, detected Listeria monocytogenes on equipment used in packing the products as well as in an area near where these products are packed.

1. These are fresh fruits, not frozen, as I understand.

I just stocked up on a bunch of frozen fruit packs for smoothies. Hope this recall doesn't get extended to include frozen stuff.
