MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Peaches, plums, nectarines and pluots sold at BJ’s Wholesale Club, Costco and Trader Joe’s have been recalled after the some of the fruit tested positive for listeria, a potentially dangerous food-borne bacterium.

California fruit packing company Wawona Packing Co. is voluntarily recalling the tree-ripened stone fruit that was packed on June 1, 2014 through July 12, 2014 and then shipped directly to retailers and wholesalers who resell the products.

The U.S. Food And Drug Administration has released a full product list for consumers and photos of product labels.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause a potentially fatal infection and is particularly dangerous to older adults, pregnant women, newborns, and adults with weakened immune systems, according to the CDC. Symptoms may include fever and muscle aches, GI symptoms, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions.
