Amy’s Kitchen recalls products over listeria fears
Petaluma, Calif. — Organic food company Amy’s Kitchen has voluntarily recalled about 74,000 cases of frozen and prepackaged products containing spinach over listeria concerns.
It comes after one of Amy’s suppliers issued a recall notice saying the Petaluma-based company may have received organic spinach possibly tainted with the bacteria that causes listeria.
The disease can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
The company reports it has not had any complaints of illnesses from the products being recalled in the United States and Canada.
The recalled items include vegetable lasagna, tofu vegetable lasagna, garden vegetable lasagna, tofu scramble, enchilada verde meal, spinach pizza, brown rice and vegetables owl, stuffed pasta shells bowl, gluten-free tofu scramble and the breakfast wrap.
