Sprouts recalls private brand spinach
Sprouts Farmers Market is recalling bags of its private brand frozen spinach leaves after finding traces of listeria in some products.
Both the regular and organic 16-ounce bags, manufactured by National Frozen Foods of Oregon, are being pulled from shelves.
The products were sold in 19 states: Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. They have “use by” dates of December 2021.
So far, no illnesses have been reported. Officials say listeria can cause high fever and severe headaches, as well as miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.
