It's never a good sign when there's a major food recall. Luckily this store is catching it before anyone gets sick.

The recall features a selection of Wegmans Brand fruits. The company is urging customers to throw away these foods because of a potential bacterial contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. Though not all of the fruits might be affected, they are issuing the recall to be safe and prevent the possibility of someone getting sick.
