Costco said the product can be identified by the package information as follows:

Kirkland Signature Real Sliced Fruit

Best By Date: Feb. 14, 2015-March 11, 2015

The recalled products may be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious infections in young children, frail or elderly people and those with weakened immune systems, Costco said in a letter posted on its website.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
