Food Recalls

Fears of possible listeria contamination have led to a national recall of whole peaches, nectarines and other fruits packed by a California company. No illnesses have been reported, but the Wawona Packing Co. has told retailers such as Wal-Mart, Costco and Trader Joe's to pull its products.

H-E-B has issued a voluntarily recall of 13 items due to the "possible presence of a foreign material."
