2015 Organic Spinach Recalls

In March 2015, about 30 different foods containing organic spinach have been recalled by Target, Costco, Wegmans, Meijer, Smart & Final, and Amy’s Kitchen due to possible contamination with Listeria, a bacteria that can cause food poisoning.

The recall was issued by the California-based spinach supplier Coastal Green Vegetable Company, LLC.

Samples taken from bulk spinach that was shipped to major retailers has tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that can cause severe food poisoning.

No illnesses have been linked to the recalled spinach, but at least 30 different products are affected. Most of the products are frozen, which means it is likely that consumers still have these products in their home.

Meijer and Wegmans Grocery Stores — A recall was issued by Twin City Foods, Inc., for packages of frozen spinach that were supplied to Meijer and Wegmans grocery stores. Products include:

  • Cadia Organic Cut Spinach, 16 oz. frozen packages

  • Wild Harvest Organic Cut Leaf Spinach, 16 oz. frozen packages
  • Wegmans Organic Just Picked Spinach, 12 oz. frozen packages

Amy’s Kitchen — Amy’s Kitchen, a major producer of vegetarian and vegan organic frozen food products, has issued a recall for about a dozen different products that contain organic spinach, including:

  • Vegetable Lasagna

  • Garden Vegetable Lasagna
  • Tofu Scramble
  • Enchilada Verde Whole Meal
  • Spinach Pizza
  • Brown Rice & Vegetable
  • Stuffed Pasta Shells Bowl
