The list of retailers includes major grocery chain, Gordon Food Service Marketplace or GFS, which has stores in Boardman and Niles.

GFS Marketplace stores stock one of the products that was included in the Wolverine Packaging Co. voluntary beef recall. That product is a Fresh Premium Angus Beef Steakburger Patty, 10 count, 4lb package. The recalled product was produced between March 31, 2014 and April 18, 2014. The GFS Marketplace store reorder number is 841757.

Upon learning of the recall, GFS Marketplace says it displayed a recall notice,and issued an urgent notification to the stores with instructions to dispose of all recalled product.

They advise customers to discard any remaining product immediately, and bring in the packaging or reciept for a refund.
