July 22, 2014 -- Packaged fresh fruit sold at Costco, BJ's, Trader Joe's and other retailers has been recalled because of concerns of possible contamination with the life-threatening bacteria listeria, according to published reports.

The voluntary recall includes peaches, plums, nectarines and pluots -- apricot-plum hybrids -- packaged between June 1 and July 12 by Wawona Packing Co. of California, WPIX-TV in New York City reported.

"Because we do not know the locations of the companies that purchased the products from our direct customers, the company is issuing a nationwide recall," Wawona said in a news release Sunday.

Wawona said internal testing discovered traces of the virulent bacteria, but no illnesses have been reported.

Since the discovery, the company said it has retrofitted and cleaned packing lines and equipment connected with the possible contamination. It also said subsequent daily testing has been negative, according to the news report.

The items affected by the recall include peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots sold in clamshell-type packages of six. If you bought the fruit, throw it away immediately. Consumers with questions can call Wawona Packing at 1-888-232-9912 or check
