Peaches Sold At Aldi And Target Have Been Recalled After A Salmonella Outbreak

Aldi and Target have issued recalls for bagged peaches which have been linked to a salmonella outbreak. So far, the outbreak has sickened 68 people across nine states.
The FDA issued a recall notice for Wawona-brand bagged peaches that were sold at Aldi over fears that they contain salmonella. They were packaged in two-pound, clear plastic bags and were sold from June 1, 2020 until now. These peaches were sold in Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.
Of the 68 cases of illnesses linked to the peaches, there have been 14 hospitalizations, according to the outbreak investigation. No deaths have been reported. If you have any of the peaches mentioned in the recall, you should discard them immediately and disinfect any surfaces they touched. If you have any doubt where your peaches came from or who supplied them, officials recommend that you return them to their place of purchase or discard them.
The FDA recall does not mention Target specifically, but the company also issued a recall notice for the peaches on its site, which links out to a Minnesota Department of Health notice on the recall. Target’s recall includes both bagged peaches and loose peaches. You can find all UPC information and other identifying details about the peaches on both of the recall notices.
This recall comes on the heels of several other salmonella outbreaks in recent weeks, including a massive, nationwide recall of onions as well as a recall of shrimp which was issued earlier this week.
