The New Jersey product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are confirming that a recall involving frozen spinach is affecting products at grocery stores in New Jersey.
Amy’s Kitchen, a popular organic prepared foods company, is recalling packages of frozen lasagna, pizza, pasta, and more containing spinach because they could be contaminated with the bacteria listeria, the company said in a recent press release.
The recall, which effects both the US and Canada, includes over 70,000 cases of a wide range of Amy’s frozen products manufactured between Jan. 21, 2015, and March 14, 2015.
Affected Amy’s products include: Vegetable Lasagna, Tofu Vegetable Lasagna, Garden Vegetable Lasagna, Tofu Scramble, Enchilada Verde Whole Meal, Spinach Pizza, Brown Rice & Vegetables Bowl, Stuffed Pasta Shells Bowl, Gluten Free Tofu Scramble, and Gluten Free Dairy Free Vegetable Lasagna.
The recall was issued after an organic spinach supplier notified Amy’s that it may have received a spinach shipment tainted with listeria, a bacteria that health officials have linked to illnesses and deaths, particularly in young children and the elderly. So far, Amy’s has received no illness complaints linked to the recall.
