CINCINNATI (AP) — Kroger is recalling spinach sold at grocery stores in 15 states due to possible Listeria contamination.
The Kroger Fresh Selections Tender Spinach was sold in 10-ounze bags and had a "best if used by" date of Sept. 16. It has a universal product code, or UPC, of 011110916495. The grocer said Wednesday that if customers did buy the recalled product, they should return it to stores for a full refund or replacement.
No illnesses have been reported. Listeria can lead to severe illness for women who are pregnant or people who have a weakened immune system.
The Kroger Co., based in Cincinnati, said the product was sold in:
- West Virginia
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
The recall involves its Kroger, Jay C, Owen's, Pay Less, Scott's, Food 4 Less, Dillons, Baker's and Gerbes stores in selected states.
The California supplier, NewStar Fresh Foods, said that recall is being done out of an abundance of caution after a single package yielded a positive test result by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
