According to the FDA, salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Common symptoms can include fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, a salmonella infection can also result in more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Anyone who has the recalled peaches in their possession should dispose of them immediately or return them to the place of purchase for a refund, the FDA said.

Consumers, restaurants, and suppliers should also use extra vigilance in cleaning and sanitizing any surfaces and containers that may have come in contact with the produce to reduce the risk of cross-contamination, including cutting boards, slicers, countertops, refrigerators and storage bins.
