Potentially Poisonous Peach Pit Made Me Puke
According to a recent report from WMUR, some nectarines and peaches sold in stores around the country including Maine and Massachusetts are being recalled because they may be contaminated with a bacteria that could make you sick. The fruit was sold at ALDI, Costco and Walmart locations.
Here are the sticker numbers that you need to be on the lookout for: 4044, 3035 and 4378, from Chile.
According to WMUR's report:
The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by the packing house which revealed that the finished products contained the bacteria," officials wrote. "The company has ceased the distribution of the product as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.
The bacteria found can cause nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea which is exactly what I had over the weekend. Not only did I eat peaches, I also ate everything else in sight and did maybe one or two shots with my friends from college. (A reunion or sorts....) I think someone put me to bed because I don't remember doing it myself. Now that I think about it - it probably wasn't the peaches that got me sick after all.
