Listeria can be deadly, so Amy’s Kitchen is recalling several products that contain organic spinach that may be tainted with Listeria monocytogenes, out of an “abundance of caution.”

No illnesses have been reported because of these products, but the company that sells natural, organic, gluten-free and non-GMO packaged foods is voluntarily recalling them.

Listeria, a type of bacteria, is particularly harmful and sometimes fatal to young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. Pregnant women can also experience miscarriages and stillbirths from listeria. In healthy individuals it can cause high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Amy’s Kitchen has recalled the following products in the United Sates and Canada.

  • Vegetable Lasagna
  • Vegetable Lasagna, CANADA
  • Tofu Vegetable Lasagna
  • Garden Vegetable Lasagna
  • Tofu Scramble
  • Enchilada Verde Whole Meal

If you have any of these products in your home, check the FDA safety and recall page for more information to determine if what you have is part of the recall. If you do have one of the products, throw it away or return it to the store where you purchased it for a refund. 

Additional Information: As of 3/24, two more brands have recalled products because of the possibly-tainted spinach. Wegmans has recalled Food You Feel Good About Just Cooked Spinach (frozen), 12 oz.  and Rising Moon Organics has recalled Spinach Florentine Ravioli, 8 oz.
