As of April 10, Meijer, in conjunction with its supplier, Revolution Farms, has announced a voluntary recall of select Fresh From Meijer premade salads. This recall occurred because these products could potentially be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The recall is part of a broader Revolution Farms lettuce recall and includes premade salads carried at Meijer stores in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, and Wisconsin.
Meijer is unaware of any illnesses from Meijer brand salad products included in this recall at this time. However, this is subject to change.
What is Listeria?
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can potentially cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
However, according to a notice from the FDA, in healthy individuals, these individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms. This may include a high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea,
The recalled premade salads have a “Fresh From Meijer” sticker on a clear plastic container. The following products are part of the recall:
