Meijer launched the recall after it received notice of a possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination from Mann Packing, a Meijer supplier based in Salinas, Calif. that sources the Meijer branded produce items.

In a statement, Meijer stressed that this is in connection with a national recall affecting numerous retailers, including several national retail chains.

Listeria was not detected in any product Meijer sold and no illnesses have been reported to date, according to the company.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women. Symptoms can include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall should contact Meijer at 800-543-3704 anytime, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Those with questions or concerns about their health are urged to call a doctor.
