SOUTHERN ILLINOIS – Peaches sold at select ALDI stores in Illinois and other states are being voluntarily recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination.
A food safety alert from The Food & Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they are investigating a “multistate outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis infections linked to bagged peaches.”
The recall includes two-pound bags of Wawona peaches, loose bulk peaches and two-pound bags of organic peaches. The alert states if customers have peaches affected by the voluntary recall, the products should be discarded immediately or returned to a local store for a full refund.
As of Wednesday, 68 people were infected with the strain of salmonella, none of which were from Illinois.
