The Food and Drug Administration reported this week that certain varieties of frozen fruit sold at Walmart WMT, -0.19%, Aldi, Target TGT, -0.42%, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe's are being recalled due to potential bacterial contamination.

Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium that may cause "serious and occasionally fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems," is what the FDA warned the food products may contain.

The warning does, however, also state that "Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea."

Simply put, that year, Berlusconi sparked a political earthquake in Europe, the effects of which will be felt long after his official funeral on Wednesday.

In the 1990s, having a business tycoon, former cruise ship singer, and overall blatantly obvious non-career politician in charge of a key EU and Nato military alliance member like Italy appeared revolutionary.

The FDA has categorized some of the recalled fruit products as potentially contaminated even though they don't contain Pineapples, such as bags of cherries or chunks of mango.

While investigating into an outbreak of the Hepatitis A virus earlier this year, the FDA also recalled huge quantities of frozen strawberries sold at Walmart, Costco COST, +0.05%, and HEB.
