Spartan Stores is initiating a precautionary recall of certain deli products due to concerns of possible Listeria Monocytogenes contact.

This recall is precautionary and is being initiated to ensure the highest degree of confidence to our customers. 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. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

No products have been identified as coming into contact with the Listeria monocytogenes organism.

The deli products were distributed to Family Fare, D&W Fresh Markets, Glen's, VG's and a limited number of independent supermarkets in Michigan.

Spartan Stores has received no reports of illness associated with the consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact their healthcare provider immediately. All of the products involved in the recall should be discarded or returned for a full refund.

For a specific list of items go to Spartan's retail websites listed below or the courtesy desks at each store.

This recall is the result of a routine surface swabbing conducted by the FDA which resulted in positive samples of Listeria monocytogenes.

Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Spartan Stores' Consumer Affairs at 1-800-451-8500 from 8 am to 5 pm EST.
