Silver Spring, Maryland—(ENEWSPF)—December 21, 2017

Meijer has announced a voluntary recall of select Meijer brand packaged products due to sliced apples contained in these products being potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. To date, there have been no known illnesses reported in connection with this recall. The recalled products were sold in Meijer stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
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, including animals. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, a Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The recalled product will be in plastic containers with printed labels and include a “sell by” range of December 17, 2017 through December 21, 2017.
