The summer of salmonella continues. The peach recall for possible salmonella contamination is now expanding.  The bagged peaches supplied by Prima Wawona between June 1, and August 19, 2020 were recalled from major chains last week. Now the Fresno, California based distributor has issued a recall for all the bulk and loose peaches they have sold between June 1 and August 3, 2020.   So far, 68 confirmed cases of salmonella in nine states traced to the contaminated peaches have been identified by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
