(WTVR)–Some sliced apples sold at McDonald’s and Burger King are part of a nearly nationwide recall.

Sliced or diced apples may have been contaminated with listeria before being shipped all over the country. No illnesses have been reported with this recall.

A subsidiary of Ready Pac has recalled nearly 300,000 cases and 300,000 individually packaged items sent to 36 states and Washington, D.C.

Listeria can cause potentially serious or life-threatening illness accompanied by fever, nausea, or diarrhea.

People who may have purchased the recalled products are asked to record use-by dates and UPC codes and contact Ready Pac at 800-800-7822.

More information on the more than two dozen products recalled and the states involved is available here on the Food and Drug Administration website.

Virginia is one of the affected states.
