NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Wegmans has announced a recall of some oranges and lemons -- sold at its stores in Brooklyn, New Jersey and Harrison, N.Y. -- over fears they may be contaminated with listeria.

These are the affected produced items, which were sold between July 21 and Aug. 7:

Wegmans 4lb Bag Valencia Oranges – UPC: 7789052363

Wegmans 2lb Bag Lemons – UPC: 7789015917

Wegmans bulk lemons – UPC: 4033

The lemons and oranges were supplied to Wegmans by Freshouse Produce LLC of Salisbury, NC, which issued a voluntary recall after the company’s internal testing identified Listeria monocytogenes on a piece of equipment in one of its packing facilities. No illnesses associated with this recall have been reported to Wegmans or its supplier.

The affected products were also sold in Wegmans stores in Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland.

Customers should return these products to the service desk for a full refund. Those with questions may contact Wegmans Food Markets 1-855-934-3663 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. or Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
