In New Zealand, peaches imported from the United States are being recalled due to potential contamination with Salmonella bacteria. The Ministry of Primary Industries is recalling loose, fresh yellow-flesh peaches sold between 10 July and 25 August in the North Island.
The recall concerns Prima and Sweet Value brand peaches that were imported from California and sold at numerous New Zealand supermarkets, fresh fruit and vegetable retailers, and grocery shops.
The peaches have green fruit stickers with PLU numbers 4044 and 4038.
According to an article on tvnz.co.nz¸ there have been no reported cases of Salmonella enteritidis infection in New Zealand connected to the imported fruit so far.
