Fresh & Easy Recalling Washed Spinach Over Listeria Fear

EL SEGUNDO (AP) — Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market Inc. is recalling its f&e brand bagged Washed Spinach because it could be contaminated with listeria.

While no illnesses have been reported, the El Segundo, Calif. company said Friday that it was taking precautions after one bag of spinach tested positive for listeria.

The recalled products have the “enjoy by” date of October 16 and were sold in Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market stores in California, Nevada and Arizona.

Listeria is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people or others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms can include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
