May 12, 2023 — Lancaster Foods recalled several brands of bagged spinach, kale, and collard greens after a bag tested positive for Listeria bacteria.
The recall involves products that expired on April 29 and May 1, 2023, under the brand-names Giant®, Lancaster® and Robinson Fresh®.
Although the items are expired, it can take up to 70 days for the symptoms of a Listeria infection to appear.
The recalled products include:
- Robinson Fresh® Kale Greens (16-oz., 32-oz.) — Best By May 01, 2023
- Robinson Fresh® Collard Greens (16-oz.) — Best By May 01, 2023

- Giant® Curly Leaf Spinach (8-oz.) — Best By April 29, 2023
- Giant® Collard Greens (16-oz.) — Best By May 01, 2023
No illnesses were reported, but a bag of Chopped Kale Greens with an expiration date of “BEST IF USED BY May 1 2023” tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes bacteria during routine testing by the New York Agriculture and Markets Food Safety Division.
These recalled salad items were sold in Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
The symptoms of a Listeria infection may include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Pregnant women are also at risk of suffering a miscarriage or stillbirth.
Anyone who develops symptoms of Listeria should contact their healthcare provider immediately and tell them you ate a food product that was recalled due to potential contamination.
