Default Fruit Recall...

There has been a voluntary recall of fruit, possibly contaminated with Listeria, I just bought 25lbs of plums that are part of this recall.
Read about the recall here:

Regards, GF.

I bought peaches just for this recall. I figure I can get my daily allowance of vitamins and fresher breath at the same time.

I bought a big box a couple of weeks ago, and ate most of them, some more are in the freezer for smoothies, am I going to die?
Seriously, I haven't looked it up yet will freezing kill listeria?

According to this single test, NO:

http://news.psu.edu/story/141493/199...sick-ice-cream

For her master's degree project, Municio inoculated an ice cream mix, froze it, packaged it, and stored it for one to five months before feeding it to two groups of healthy and immunocompromised mice.

She found that the bacterium retained its virulence even after five months of storage at -19 degrees C. "Freezing apparently did not cause enough damage to prevent the organism from spreading," Municio writes. It grew and multiplied in the mice's stomachs and intestines, spread to their livers and spleens, and in some cases reached their brains.

"Even after 18 months of freezing," notes Doores, "only 53.4 percent of the Listeria were killed."
