On December 20, 2017, Aldi stores voluntarily issued a recall of several kinds of apples. This recall is effective in the North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, Georgia, Indiana and Kentucky Aldi stores with apples sold after December 13th. These are recalled because the apples were potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, bacteria that kills hundreds of people each year. Those most at risk are newborns, pregnant women, elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. Jack Brown Produce, also issuing a recall, reports that these apples were branded “Apple Ridge” in various stores throughout Georgia, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri and Indiana beginning on December 11th (Moody, Aaron, 2017).

The following list is taken from this site: ALDI recalls apples with possible Listeria contamination.

Details on the recalled ALDI products are as follows:
▪ Honeycrisp apples, 2-pound bag: UPC code: 079954000015.
▪ Honeycrisp apples, unpackaged.
▪ Fuji, Gala, Golden Delicious apples, 3-pound bag: UPC codes 033383087139, 03338308689, 033383081175.
