Police say Huron man passing out tainted peaches

HURON, S.D. (AP) — Police in Huron are looking for an individual who took 46 cases of potentially contaminated peaches from a grocery store dumpster and has been passing them out around town.

Fair City Foods in Huron recently announced they're recalling their peaches as part of a nationwide recall of peaches distributed by a California-based company. Peaches the company packed between June 1 and July 12 tested positive listeria.

So far police say they know of 28 cases that have been distributed by the individual.

Officials say anyone who has received one of the cases should bring them to the Huron Police Department.

Listeria is a bacterium that can cause a life-threatening infection.

Performance Radio of Huron says some of the symptoms of listeria poisoning include fever, muscle aches and gastrointestinal distress.
