Simply Balanced frozen organic chopped spinach recalled for possible Listeria contamination

Food and DrinkSuperior Foods has issued a recall for Simply Balanced frozen organic spinach because the product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, those that do contract it could experience high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. People experiencing these symptoms should seek immediate medical attention.


This recalled product may be identified by the UPC numbers positioned on the back of the product package.

Alaska DEC has confirmed these products were available in Alaska. To date, no illnesses have been reported.

Consumers who have any of the recalled products are urged to dispose of them or return them to the store where they were purchased.

Consumers with questions may call 1-866-672-0811 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
