The FDA has issued a product recall on frozen spinach from Superior Foods because they're potentially contaminated by listeria. The official product recall is on Simply Balanced Organic Chopped Frozen Spinach 10 oz.
Symptoms of a listeria infection include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Children, seniors, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems are most at risk. Listeriosis can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. About 1,600 people per year get sick from eating listeria-laden foods, according to the CDC.
Anyone who bought the product is encouraged to throw it away or return it to the store where it was purchased for an exchange or full refund. For questions, contact Superior Foods at 866-672-0811.
