Trader Joe's is recalling some of its fresh produce.

The company is pulling peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots—which is a cross between a plum and apricot—off shelves amid concerns about Listeria.

The Wawona Packing Company says that some of the products may have been contaminated.

Trader Joe's is not the only retailer to sell produce packaged by Wawona, and the company has issued a nationwide recall.

So far, no cases of Listeria have been reported. Symptoms of the disease include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

It can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women and may be fatal in severe cases.
