Newburgh, New York Company Recalls Spinach

The recall comes after spinach processed by Solata Foods was tested by the New York State Department of Agriculture and found to be contaminated. Market Food Inspectors and food laboratory analysts determined that samples of spinach contained Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria can cause serious infections in young children, the elderly or those with certain health conditions. These infections can be fatal. Even healthy individuals can suffer severe symptoms including nausea, diarrhea, fever and headaches. Foods contaminated with listeria can also cause miscarriages in pregnant women who consume it.
