On March 22nd, Amy’s Kitchen Inc., the California based company, notified its distributors and retailers that 73,897 frozen meals that contain spinach may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. This organism could be fatal to children, the elderly, the frail, pregnant women and others with a weakened immune system. Getting an infection could cause a person to experience nausea, stiffness, headaches, abdominal pain, diarrhea and more.
Up to this point, there aren’t any confirmed cases of consumers getting infected. The food warnings are for lasagnas, pizzas, and other meals that contain the alleged contaminated spinach. Check out the FDA for a complete list of all the potentially contaminated foods.
