Meijer recalls produce throughout Midwest stores.

MICHIGAN (WPBN/WGTU) -- Meijer is recalling some packaged produce for a possible foodborne illness contamination.

The store is recalling Meijer-brand produce throughout the stores in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Wisconsin for possible outbreaks of Listeria.

The produce impacted by the recall are dated between September 27 and October 20.

It includes broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, zucchini, squash and peppers on plastic containers or foam trays and printed labels.

Meijer says no illnesses have been reported but the issue was discovered with a supplier.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly and others with weakened immune systems.

The disease can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women. Healthy adults can experience flu-like symptoms.
