Some fresh fruit being sold in Colorado is being pulled due to the possibility of it being contaminated by listeria.

The peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots are grown in California, but available at local stores like King Soopers. The company that sells them, Wawona Packing Company, says no illnesses have been linked to the fruit, but because there is a chance of listeria contamination, they are voluntarily recalling them. The recall affects fruit packed between June 1 and July 12.

The company says that the recall was initiated "based on internal company testing.

"The company shut down the implicated packing lines, retrofitted equipment, sanitized the facility and retested. Subsequent daily test results have been negative," the company said in a release.

"By taking the precautionary step of recalling product, we will minimize even the slightest risk to public health, and that is our priority."
