Meijer packaged produce recalled over Listeria concerns

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – If you bought packaged vegetables at Meijer this month, make sure you’re paying attention.

Meijer executives have issued a major recall of Meijer brand packaged produce over Listeria concerns.

According to the FDA, Mann Packaging, a Meijer supplier that packages the produce, was informed of a potential Listeria contamination identified by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

Some of the 35 recalled products include broccoli florets, store-made vegetable trays, zucchini squash, vegetable party trays, and cauliflower florets. The products either come in plastic containers or foam trays.

No illnesses have been reported, but the company wants consumers who bought the products in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, or Ohio to either toss the items or return them for a full refund.

The FDA says Listeria can cause serious infection in young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems.

Short term symptoms of the illness include fever, headaches, nausea, and abdominal pain.
