Michigan-based North Bay Produce is voluntarily recalling several varieties of apples for possible Listeria contamination.

Nearly 2,300 cases of fresh Michigan apples and two bulk bins that were distributed in eight states are part of the recall because they are potentially contaminated with the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria, the company said in a news release.

Recalled varieties include McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Jonathan, Fuji, Jonamac and Red Delicious apples. The apples were sold in plastic bags under these brands: Great Lakes, North Bay Produce Pure Michigan as well as unbranded in clear plastic tote bags, white paper tote bags, and individually from retailers’ display trays.

The apples were shipped between Oct. 16-21 to wholesalers, retailers and brokers in Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.

The recall was initiated after a product test revealed that finished products contained the bacteria, the release states. No other North Bay products are affected by the recall and the company said it is “not aware of any illnesses linked by health officials to this recall.”

A full list of the affected apples along with descriptions and photos has been posted at www.northbayproduce.com/recall.

If you have the recalled produce, the company is advising not to consume it and to either discard or return the apples to place of purchase.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, exposure to Listeria bacteria can cause serious or fatal infections in children, elderly people and those with compromised immune systems. It also can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women. Healthy individuals may experience high fever, severe headaches, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
