The products were sold at 85 Wegmans stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts from January 27 to March 21, 2015.
Amy’s Kitchen and Wegmans have not received any reports of food poisoning related to the recall, and it is being undertaken “out of an abundance of caution” after a supplier discovered Listeria contamination.
Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that is commonly found in soil and water. When the bacteria gets into a food processing facility, it can live there for years and contaminate food products. Infections can be deadly, especially in young children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems.
The FDA warned:
“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.”
The recall includes the following products from Amy’s Kitchen:
- Vegetable Lasagna
- Tofu Vegetable Lasagna
- Garden Vegetable Lasagna
- Tofu Scramble
- Enchilada Verde Whole Meal
- Spinach Pizza
- Brown Rice & Vegetable
- Stuffed Pasta Shells Bowl
- Gluten Free Tofu Scramble Breakfast Wrap
- Gluten Free Dairy Free Veg Lasagna
