Carmel apples recalled due to possible listeria contamination

If you've recently purchased caramel apples from California Snack Foods, you need to check your package. Therefore, California Snack Foods Inc. of South El Monte, California is voluntarily recalling certain lots of their apples due to the possibility of listeria contamination. The apples have been sold at various retail and discount stores in the following states: Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, and Utah.

Thus far, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have reported 29 illnesses in 10 different states due to the apples. Furthermore, the apples recalled were stamped with the best by dates between August 15 and November 28, and were produced by Bidart Brothers. Listeria is a bacterium that can cause serious illness and often fatal infections in young children, older adults, and those with weakened immune systems.
