box filled with bags of applesA Michigan produce company is recalling nearly 2,300 cases of fresh apples for possible listeria contamination. North Bay Produce said that the recall affects six different apple varieties including Fuji, Honeycrisp, McIntosh, Jonamac, Jonathan, and Red Delicious.
The recalled apples were sold in plastic bags under the brands Great Lakes, North Bay Produce, and Pure Michigan. They were also sold in unbranded clear plastic tote bags, white paper tote bags, and individually from retailers’ display trays.
The affected apples were shipped to Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin between October 16 and October 21. Apples purchased before October 16th are not affected by the recall.

This recall is the result of a test revealing the presence of listeria, the company said in a statement. There have been no reported illnesses related to the apples so far.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious illness in young children, elderly people, and anyone with weakened immune systems. Healthy people can also be affected, and it can be particularly dangerous for pregnant women and their unborn children.
Anyone with an affected product is urged not to consume it and to either discard it immediately or return it to the store where it was purchased. Consumers with questions may call 1-231-929-4001, Monday through Friday, from 8 AM to 5 PM Eastern Time, or visit NorthBayProduce.com.
