GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Meijer announced it is recalling a recent shipment of its pre-made Caesar salads after discovering they were mislabeled as Greek salads. The mislabeled salads contain packaged croutons, which is an undeclared wheat allergen not included on the Greek salad kit label. Individuals who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. Meijer does not include croutons in its freshly-assembled Greek Salad kit.
The mislabeled salad kits were distributed to all 230 Meijer locations throughout the Midwest.
The croutons in the affected Caesar salad kits mistakenly labeled as "Greek Salad" are individually packaged within the salad. To date, there have been no known illnesses reported to Meijer associated with these products.
The recalled salads have a sell by date of March 3, 2017 and will be in plastic containers with printed labels that have the UPC 218234-xxxxxx – the last 6 digits will vary, and are determined by weight.
Customers who have purchased this product can return it to the customer service desk at any Meijer store for a full refund. For additional information, please contact Meijer at (800) 543-3704, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
