GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Meijer Inc. is recalling some packaged produce items in six states due to potential listeria concatenation.

The recall affects certain Meijer-brand produce sold in stores in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio. The items were purchased between Sept. 27 and Oct. 20 and are in plastic containers or foam trays with printed labels.

The list includes broccoli, caulidflower, asparagus, zucchini, squash and peppers. The full list can be found on Meijer's website.

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

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. It could cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Healthy adults could experience flu-like symptoms.
