The store chain put out the recall after Freshouse Produce LLC of Salisbury, N.C., issued a voluntary recall for its lemons and oranges after Listeria monocytogenes were discovered on a piece of packing equipment. Freshouse Produce provided Wegmans with the produce.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause high fever, headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. It can be potentially fatal for those with weakened immune systems, or cause miscarriages and still birth among pregnant women, according to the FDA.
