By now, you may have heard of the voluntary recall of peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots due to contamination with Listeria. Although risk of a Listeria infection is low, it can be concerning for women who are pregnant. Listeriosis can cause mild, flu-like symptoms such as fever, muscle aches, and diarrhea. If you purchased any of these fruits during the affected time period, we recommend you throw them out. If you have any of the symptoms listed above, please call our office at 804.288.4084. It’s important to remember that infection from Listeria is extremely rare and even in mothers who have the infection, the chance that it will affect your baby is low.
