To date, there have been no known illnesses reported in connection to any of the recalls.
The products involved in the recall contain apple slices provided by Detroit-based Fresh-Pak, Inc, which was alerted by their supplier Sparta-based Jack Brown. Jack Brown recently announced the contamination risk and recalled other apple products sold in Meijer and other retailers.
The recalled products will be in plastic containers with printed labels include “sell by” range of December 17, 2017 through December 21, 2017. The products were sold in Meijer stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
