GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Meijer has recalled vegetable trays sold in several states, including Indiana, over concerns about possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The products were available between Sept. 25, 2019 and Nov. 4, 2019 in all Meijer stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

The recall from Meijer and Mann Packing Co. also includes broccoli florets served on salad bars at the Knapps Corner and Rockford Meijer stores in the Grand Rapids, Mich. area between Oct. 1, 2019 and Oct. 30, 2019.

There have been no illnesses linked to the recall so far. The vegetable trays were sold in various weights ranging from 7 oz. to 2 lbs. Look for the following sell-by dates:
