Meijer recalls vegetables for potential Listeria contamination

Meijer recalls vegetables for potential Listeria contamination

Meijer recalling some packaged produce items in six states due to potential listeria concatenation.

In February, Meijer recalled its Meijer-branded Colby and Colby Jack cheese sold through its deli counters because of potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The company released a list of vegetable products affected by the recall - which includes cauliflower, broccoli and asparagus - purchased from September 27-Oct.

The veggies were sold between September 27 and October 20 and were packaged in plastic containers or on foam trays with printed labels. A full list is posted on the Grand Rapids-based company's website.

The California-based supplier, Mann Packing says the contamination was first identified by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

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

Listeria can cause serious or fatal infections in children, people with compromised immune systems, and the elderly. Otherwise heathy adults can experience flu-like symptoms. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Customer Care at 1-800-553-2324 Monday thru Friday from 9 am to 9 pm.
