Lucky for me I haven’t had a good peach in years!! I haven’t had good fruit period other than apples and grapes. The rest I just don’t deal with. My problem? I’m in Florida. One state away from GEORGIA. Their state fruit is the FUCKING PEACH! But why am I getting peaches from other countries? I can’t seem to get a juicy Georgia peach in my state to save my hungry life! I’m fruit deprived and it’s not my fault. I’ve resorted to eating CANNED PEACHES because they taste better than the nasty ass dried up apricots that I’m getting. The peaches I’ve had over the years have tasted like dried APRICOTS!

I’M SICK OF THIS #SHIT! I love fruit. I want it badly. But its so damn expensive. I can only afford snack cakes and chips. Just kidding. Lol

Anyway, it’s getting to the point where this damn food industry is gonna kill many of us or leave us gravely ill. There’s a new report every week about what NOT to eat. The worst one for me is PEANUT BUTTER AND LETTUCE.

How you gonna take away peanut butter? I have a head of lettuce in my fridge right now because that seems to be safer than romaine. I’ve got ground turkey that I’m hoping doesn’t kill My family when I make pasta this week. I honestly don’t know what to do about food anymore. All I can say is cook everything thoroughly and clean everything, sanitize and hope for the best. Smh…

The fruit is sold at Aldi, Wal-Mart,

Fresh peaches, nectarines and plums sold at Aldi and Walmart stores in Kentucky are being recalled over potential listeria contamination.

New York-based Jac. Vandenberg Inc. issued the recall last week, which affects several states.

If you bought nectarines, peaches and plums from Aldi, or peaches from Walmart, you may want to check your packages.

Here’s what to look for:

The peaches and nectarines are sold as a bulk retail produce item with PLU sticker (PLU# 4044, 3035, 4378) showing the country of origin of Chile.

The peaches, nectarines and plums sold at Aldi are packaged in a 2-pound bag with the brand Rio Duero, EAN# 7804650090281, 7804650090298, 7804650090304.

The nectarines sold at Costco (in California) are packaged in a 4-pound plastic clamshell with the brand Rio Duero, EAN# 7804650090212.

Which states are affected

The Fresh Peaches, Fresh Nectarines and Fresh Plums were distributed in Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia and Virginia.

What is Listeria monocytogenes?

According to the FDA, it’s the third-leading cause of death from food poisoning.
But the FDA says it usually causes an “unpleasant but not serious” illness in most healthy people.
There are some who are at high risk — such as pregnant women, newborns, older adults and people with weakened immune systems — who can develop listeriosis, which can be severe or even lead to death.

Symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Has anyone gotten sick?

The company has said no illnesses have been reported in connection with the problem.
“The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by the packing house which revealed that the finished products contained the bacteria,” the company said in a release. It has stopped the distribution of the product.
