Check Your Freezer for These Frozen Meals That Are Supposed to Make Your Life Easier. Amy’s Kitchen Cuisine Recalls Meals Because of Listeria Scare
It might be a good idea to check your freezer for any Amy’s Kitchen frozen meals. Nearly 74,000 cases of Amy’s Kitchen frozen meals are being voluntarily recalled by the company over a possible listeria risk.
Based in California, Amy's has released a statement notifying consumers that one of their suppliers of organic spinach, which is found in many of their kitchen cuisines, may possibly have the presence of listeria monocytogenes.
Though Amy's hasn't been made aware of any complaints of illnesses, the company has decided to issue the recall "out of an abundance of caution."
Some of the Amy's Kitchen cuisines affected include Amy's Bowls of Brown Rice and Vegetables, Amy's Spinach and Cheese Enchiladas and Amy's Garden Vegetable Lasagna. Other products that may contain the organic spinach can be seen by clicking the US Food and Drug Administration's link. The recalled products were distributed to stores nationwide in the United States and in Canada.
Consumers that have any of these products are being asked to dispose of them or return them to the store where they were purchased for a refund or possible exchange. Consumers with additional questions or concerns can call Amy's toll-free at 1-866-672-0626.
Products that are contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause the serious infection listeriosis. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this infection can have the most affect on older adults, adults with weakened immune systems, pregnant women and newborns.
