PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The Food and Drug Administration announced a recall of peaches, nectarines and plums sold at stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and several other states.

More than 1,700 cartons of peaches, more than 1,200 cartons of nectarines, and 365 cartons of plums have been recalled due to a possible contamination of listeria monocytogenes.

The fruits were distributed by Jac.
