March 27, 2015 — About 30 frozen spinach products have been recalled due to possible Listeria contamination, including Simply Balanced frozen spinach sold at Target retail stores nationwide.
Superior Foods, Inc., of Watsonville, CA, has issued a recall for Simply Balanced Organic Chopped Spinach in 10-oz steamer bags.
No reports of illness have been linked to the products, and the recall is being undertaken “out of an abundance of caution.”
Superior Foods issued the recall after being notified of possible contamination by their supplier.
On March 20, the supplier Coastal Green Vegetable Company, of Oxnard, California, began issuing recalls after a microbiology report found Listeria in frozen spinach that had already been shipped out.
Coastal Greens describes themselves as a “small processor” of spinach. However, they supplied frozen spinach to several major retailers.
Listeria Food Poisoning
Listeria monocytogenes is a common type of bacteria that is found in soil and water. When it contaminates food, people can get seriously ill with food poisoning. Infections can become life-threatening, especially for young children, older adults, or people with weakened immune systems.
The FDA warns:
“Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”
