Meijer recalls packaged produce due to listeria risk

Meijer recalls packaged produce due to listeria risk”

Midwest retailer Meijer Inc. says it's recalling some packaged produce items in six states due to potential listeria contamination.

Meijer was notified of the possible listeria contamination after it had been identified by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the company said.

The recall affects 35 products and includes vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus as well as party trays sold in Meijer-branded plastic or foam packaging in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin between September 27 and October 20, the company said on Saturday.

The FDA says the only Trader Joe's item involved in the recall is Kohlrabi Salad Blend, sold in 10-ounce bags.

The items were supplied by Mann Packing, which is based in Salinas, Calif. "Customers should stop using the product and either dispose of it or return it to the customer service desk at any Meijer store for a full refund".

Listeria can cause serious or fatal infections in children, people with compromised immune systems, and the elderly. Symptoms, which can start one to four weeks after eating contaminated food, include diarrhea and fever. It could cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
