The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, is investigating an ongoing multistate outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis infections potentially linked to peaches packed or supplied by Prima Wawona or Wawona Packing Company.
CDC reports that epidemiologic evidence indicates that peaches are the likely source of this outbreak. As of August 19, 2020, CDC is reporting a total of 68 cases across nine states. FDA’s investigation to identify a source of contamination is ongoing.
On August 22, 2020, Prima Wawona expanded their recall to include bagged and bulk, or loose, peaches that they supplied to retailers nationwide.
On August 23, 2020, the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued public health and consumer advisories reporting cases in Canada associated with this outbreak and warning consumers to avoid eating recalled Prima Wawona peaches.
