30 Bananas a Day!

Hey all.  Have any of you bitten into a juicy plum beauty to find that the pit center is hollow?  It's like the pit is split open (maybe even sprouting) and you can see translucent crystals that taste nasty. 

This is the only link I can find with relevant information: http://www.umanitoba.ca/afs/hort_inquiries/fruit_and_fruit_plants/p...

It says that its a fungal disease and characterized by thick spongy skin and powdery grey substance that kinda resembles dust. 

I've gotten organic plums from a few different places and usually a couple in every batch will have the plum pocket.  How do you guys pick out the healthy plums from the non?  Most plums feel the same and have the grey powder on the top near the stem or the bottom.  And how risky would it be to eat the plum with the pocket disease?  There isn't really a difference in taste either.
