Some frozen, organic, sweet, pitted cherries packaged under Walmart’s Great Value brand are under recall after producer Sunrise Growers Inc. found Listeria monocytogenes during routine testing.

Distribution details — such cities and states — were incomplete in the recall notice, posted Wednesday on the Food and Drug Administration’s website. Sunrise Growers shipped the frozen organic cherries on Aug. 10.

“These recalled products were distributed to a customer distribution center in Louisiana and may have been redistributed to stores in Louisiana and Mississippi,” according to the recall notice, which did not name Walmart.

“The affected retail customer has been notified of this recall and instructed to remove any recalled product from retail store shelves and inventories.”

Faith Based Events

No illnesses had been confirmed in connection with the recalled frozen, organic cherries as of the posting of the recall on the FDA website. However, it can take up to 70 days after exposure for symptoms of Listeria infection to develop, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
