In April, 2016, Simply Fresh Fruit conducted a voluntary recall of a single lot of product containing cantaloupe, due to a report of a positive test for listeria monocytogenes. Subsequent to the recall, the United States Food and Drug Administration inspected Simply Fresh and issued a report which contained a number of observations. The FDA’s findings were summarized in a Warning Letter issued in October, 2016. All of the observations, findings and violations noted in the FDA letter were addressed and corrected in May, 2016.
All of our products are tested for a variety of pathogens, including listeria, regularly. No pathogens have been discovered subsequent to the one finding last April.
