When you Know More than they Do
While perusing the newsings today I discovered that Wawona Fruit Companyvoluntarily recalled a couple months worth of stone fruit production, for possible listeria contamination. They ship to Walmart. We almost never buy fruit at the store, simply because we can't afford it. However, for camp Alan treated us to some to enjoy, lots of lovely blueberries, grapes, raspberries, and of course....you knew this was coming....nectarines and plums....from Walmart, of course. And like most people do when they buy fruit...we ate them. Concerned about the potential for health issues I called the company at this number 1-888-232-9912. After well over half an hour on hold with truly horrendous music playing in the background. Eventually I couldn't stand it any longer so I called Walmart customer service. Hold only lasted about eight minutes there, although the music was also horrid. And I might as well have taken a walk in the yard. The young lady to whom I spoke offered NO HELP AT ALL. She even argued with me that the recall was of bakery goods...had to put me on hold twice more to go look it up. And then she told me to call the company....., but, but, but, I already did.....guess we will have to wait and see if we get sick. Photos of the recalled products.
