The statement said the products are packaged in clamshell packaging with a label listing the UPCs.

Consumers who have purchased this product should discontinue use immediately and return the product to the nearest Meijer store for a refund, it said.

People with questions regarding this recall should contact Meijer at 800-543-3704, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the statement said. It said those with questions or concerns about their health should contact their physician.
