Check your Amy's Kitchen frozen food products — almost 74,000 cases recalled

Bad news for Amy's Kitchen fans... The company has voluntarily recalled almost 74,000 cases of their frozen food products due to possible listeria contamination from tainted spinach.

Although Amy's Kitchen has not received any complaints of illness, they were notified by a supplier that the organic spinach provided for their products may contain the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes. According to the FDA, listeria is "an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 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."

Consumers should check this chart to see the full list of affected products. Lasagna, tofu scrambles and enchiladas are among those foods being recalled. You can also call Amy's at (707) 781-7535, Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific, for more information.
