Frozen Fruit Recall Impacts Several Retail Store Chains

The products in question were distributed to six major United States retailers and may contain pineapple contaminated with listeria.

On June 21, Sunrise Growers Inc., a subsidiary of SunOpta Inc., issued a voluntary recall of nearly 20 frozen fruit products due to potential contamination with listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled products may contain contaminated pineapple provided to the company by a third-party supplier.

According to the FDA, products and retailers impacted by the recall include:

  • Great Value brand Mixed Fruit, Dark Sweet Cherries, and Mango Chunks distributed to Walmart stores in 30 states from January 19 to June 13, 2023.
  • 365 brand Organic Tropical Fruit Medley, Organic Pineapple Chunks, Pineapple Chunks, Organic Whole Strawberries, Organic Slice Strawberries and Bananas, and Organic Blackberries distributed to specific Whole Foods stores from November 1, 2022, to June 21, 2023.
  • Trader Joe’s Organic Tropical Fruit Blend, distributed from March 28 to April 11, 2023, to Trader Joe’s stores in 31 states plus Washington D.C.
  • Good & Gather brand Organic Cherries and Berries Fruit Blend, Dark Sweet Whole Pitted Cherries, Mango Strawberry Blend, Mixed Fruit Blend, Mango Chunks, Blueberries, and Triple Berry Blend distributed to Target stores nationwide from October 14, 2022, to May 22, 2023.
  • Season’s Choice Tropical Blend, distributed to Aldi distribution centers or stores in 27 states from October 11, 2022, to May 22, 2023.
  • Best Choice Pitted Red Tart Cherries Unsweetened distributed to select AWG (Associated Wholesale Grocers) distribution centers or stores in four states from April 5 to May 4, 2023.

The complete list of product lot numbers with best-by dates appears in the FDA announcement.

The FDA urges consumers to check their freezers to see if they have purchased the recalled frozen fruit products. Moreover, the agency says people should not eat these specific products and discard or return them to the retail store for a full refund.

Retailers have already been notified of the company’s recall and instructed to remove the products from their inventory.

Listeria is a bacterium that can cause symptoms including fever, headache, nausea, and diarrhea. However, the illness can be severe or life-threatening in people with weakened immune systems, young children, and older adults. In addition, listeria can cause miscarriage or stillbirth in pregnant individuals.

However, so far, no cases of listeria have been reported due to this recall, the FDA says.
