 Ready Pac Foods Recalls Items Containing Packaged Apple Slices After Listeria Contamination Reports
Packaged sliced apples sold to McDonald's and Burger King and grocery chains such as Wegmans Food Markets are being recalled by its manufacturer following reports that they could be contaminated with bacterium listeria.

Ready Pac Foods revealed that it has voluntarily recalled more than 290,000 cases and over 296,000 individual packs of fruit, vegetable and sandwich products in which the contaminated apples were used.

The company said that it initiated the recall after finding the equipment in its Missa Bay unit was infected with listeria.

McDonald's has already swung into action and has removed all products that used the apple from its menu in "an abundance of caution" and added that so far there has been no complaints of people getting sick from the products.
