Sherman Produce distributed 10 ounce packages to Schnucks Grocery Stores where they were sold under the store brand.  The FDA says that the walnuts could contain Listeria-which can cause fever, nausea and diarrhea.

Lori Willis, a spokeswoman for Schnucks, says the walnuts were sold a few weeks ago.   But Willis says the company takes the recall seriously.

"Well it's very likely that the walnuts in question are no longer in commerce, but if customers do find that they still have a tray pack of these walnuts dating back from March 22nd to May 1st, again we would ask them to please return them to Schnucks for a full refund," Willis said.

No illnesses have been reported.
