Peaches Sold At Some Bozeman Grocery Stores Recalled
If you've purchased Prima Wawona peaches Walmart, Target, or Smith's in Bozeman, the company is voluntarily recalling all of its bulk/loose peaches distributed and sold from June 1 through August 3 and its bagged Wawona and Wawona Organic peaches distributed and sold from June 1 through August 19 because the products could possibly be contaminated with Salmonella.
We called the produce department at Smith's in Bozeman, and were told that they did carry the Wawona organic peaches, and that they have been discarded.
The bagged peaches were distributed and sold in supermarkets with the following product codes:
- Wawona Peaches – 033383322001

For bagged peaches, the product codes may be found at the bottom of each package. All affected peaches may be found in stores nationwide.
The bulk/loose peaches are sold in grocery stores in a variety of formats, typically bins where consumers may select their own fruit and may have the following stickers with PLU numbers on them:
Prima® Wawona is recalling the peaches as a precaution in connection with a Salmonella outbreak under investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that is suspected to have caused the illness of more than 60 people in nine states.
Anyone who has the recalled product in their possession should dispose of it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
