This week, Aldi announced a voluntary recall of assorted peaches due to possible Salmonella contamination. This recall comes on the heels of a string of many other produce recalls over the past few weeks including potatoes, lemons, limes, oranges, and onions.

The contaminated peaches in question are from supplier Wawona Packing Company. This recall affects both organic loose bulk and packaged peaches found in two-pound plastic pouches. This announcement comes after more than 85 people around the country have reported experiencing sickness linked to the peach outbreak.

Out of an abundance of caution, Aldi voluntarily recalled peaches from stores 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.

Even if you didn’t physically purchase peaches in an Aldi store, you should still be wary and check exactly where your peaches came from. The retailer also announced that affected peaches were additionally distributed through the store’s partnership with Instacart.
