    Meijer recalls store brand Muenster cheese

    Listeria concern triggers recall of pre-wrapped ham subs as well

    By Store Brands

    Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Meijer said it is recalling its Meijer brand Artisan Made Natural Muenster Cheese and its pre-wrapped Ham Sub on Artisan White Baguette due to potential cross-contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause miscarriages and stillbirths as well as fatal infections in young children and frail or elderly individuals, according to the FDA.

    • Labeled with the UPC code 8-86926 27573-5, the affected cheese, sold in the retailer’s deli section, has expiration dates of March 28, 2017; May 13, 2017; and June 10, 2017.
    • An older product, the grab-and-go ham subs had the UPC code 7-13733 76499-5 and sell-by dates between Nov. 2 and Dec. 30, 2016.

    There have been no known illnesses reported to Meijer associated with these products.

    Customers should either dispose of the products or return them to a Meijer customer service desk for a full refund.

    Meijer received notice of a possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination from Massillon, Ohio-based MDS Foods, a Meijer supplier, which cited potential cross-contamination from being on the same line as previously recalled cheese.
