Customers who purchased fresh produce at Walmart in Andover last week may need to throw it out.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture issued a consumer advisory Friday, June 28, in response to a chemical incident that occurred June 22 at the Walmart Supercenter at 1851 Bunker Lake Blvd. in Andover.

Anyone who bought fresh, unpackaged produce (such as apples, peaches, grapes, herbs and onions) from the store between 6 a.m. Sunday, June 23, and 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, is asked to dispose of the product "out of an abundance of caution."

The department says other unpackaged foods for sale at the store were destroyed following the incident and that all foods now available for sale at the location are not affected by the incident.

Anyone experiencing adverse symptoms is advised to contact a health care provider.
