Listeria isn’t typically dangerous for young and healthy individuals. It can be a different story though for children, the elderly, those with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women. It’s not unheard of for a Listeria contamination to lead to a stillbirth for pregnant women.

As of now, Frozen Food Development and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are unaware of the origin of the contamination. For that reason, production has been halted while they investigate the issue. Customers that purchased the recalled spinach can return it to their retailer for a refund. So far, no illnesses have been reported related to this recall.
