CDPH warns consumers not to eat Happy Apple brand caramel apples

Monday, Dec. 29, 2014 — California Department of Public Health Director Dr. Ron Chapman warned consumers recently not to eat all varieties of Happy Apple brand caramel apples because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. CDPH is coordinating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other state and local agencies in the investigation of 29 cases of Listeriosis in 10 states which appear to be linked to the consumption of multiple brands of caramel apples. All 29 cases have been hospitalized and five deaths have been reported. A single-case patient in California has died.

Happy Apple Company, with manufacturing facilities in Orosi, California and Union, Missouri, is voluntarily recalling all varieties of Happy Apple brand caramel apples, after learning of the recall of apples used to produce the caramel apples by one of their apple suppliers. These caramel apples were packaged in clear, plastic containers as a single pack, three pack, four pack or eight pack. All Happy Apple brand caramel apples with “Best if used by dates” between Aug. 25, 2014 and Nov. 23, 2014 are being recalled.
