A New York produce wholesaler is recalling peaches, nectarines, and plums it distributed to stores in a number of states, including Market Basket stores in Massachusetts and Hannaford stores in Maine.

Jac. Vandenberg Inc. of Yonkers, N.Y., issued the recall last week, according to the Food and Drug Adminstration. The fruit might be tainted with Listeria monocytogenes, “an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems,” the FDA said.

There were no reported illnesses as of Jan. 24, the FDA said.
