CALEDONIA, Mich. โ€” Revolution Farms is voluntarily recalling the listed products packed between March 3 and March 11 because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, 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 illnesses have been reported to date. If you think you may have become ill from something you ate, seek immediate medical attention. The recall was initiated when the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) received a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes in a random sample test of a single package of Revolution Farms Green Sweet Crisp โ€“ 5oz Retail with Best By date of April 2, 2023.

The recalled products were sold to the following retailers and food service distributors in the states of MI, OH, IN, IL, KY, and WI: SpartanNash stores, Meijer stores, Bridge St. Market, Kingmaโ€™s Market, Fresh Thyme Market Grand Rapids, Fresh Thyme Market Kalamazoo, Horrocks Market Grand Rapids, Doorganics, Cherry Capital Foods, Gordon Food Service, Van Eerden Foodservice, Vine Line Produce, Luna restaurant, Russโ€™ Commissary, and Pearson Foods Corporation.

All recalled products were distributed under the Revolution Farms brand name. Only the products and product codes listed in the table are included in the recall.

Pictures to assist customers in identifying the recalled products are found at the end of this announcement.

Revolution Farms is cooperating with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development on this ongoing investigation.

Affected retailers have been instructed to remove all recalled products from store shelves. Consumers who have purchased the recalled products should discard them or return them to their place of purchase for a full refund.
