Meijer recalls some packaged produce for listeria concern

- Meijer is recalling some packaged produce items due to a potential Listeria contamination.

The recall includes a total of more than 30 vegetable products sold between Sept. 27, 2017 and Oct. 20, 2017 at Meijer stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. A full list of items can be seen below.

Meijer says it received notice of the possible contamination from Mann Packacing, a Meijer supplier based in Salinas, Calif. that sources the Meijer branded produce items. All recalled items were sold in plastic or foam containers. 

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms like high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, a Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the recalled products.

Customers that purchased the items have been advised to dispose of them or return to the customer service desk at any Meijer store for a full refund.

Anyone seeking additional information about the recall has been asked to contact Meijer at 1-800-543-3704.
