Holland butcher recalls turkey for listeria

HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — A Holland butcher is recalling turkey lunch meat due to a possible listeria contamination.

Earl’s Meats says the recalled meat was sold from the retail cooler at the store and was marked with sell-by dates between Feb. 24 and March 3.

No illnesses linked to the turkey meat have been reported, but a sample of the food tested positive for listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria can cause the dangerous illness Listeriosis, which initially presents with flu-like symptoms.

Anyone who bought the recalled meat is asked to return it to the store for a full refund. Anyone with questions can call Earl Bosch at 616.392.6392.
