Walmart recalls thousands of oranges, apples, pears and bananas after red dragon fruit is linked to rare disease

Walmart recalled more than 500 million pounds of oranges and other fruits and vegetables from stores in 28 states last week, including more than 30 million pounds in Ohio.

The company is still working to figure out how the fruit was contaminated.

The Orange County Register reported the company had notified consumers about the red dragon fruits, which are also known as the green dragon fruit.

The red dragon is the most common red fruit in the United States.

Walmart said Thursday it had tested the orange and red dragon foods.

The stores that received the recalls included: The Grocery Store in Indianapolis, Ohio; the National Market in Ohio; and the CVS Superstore in Cleveland, Ohio.
