We have some bad news for those of you who rely on Amy's Kitchen for convenient nourishment. The company is voluntarily recalling an estimated 73,897 cases of 19 types of products after discovering that one of its suppliers may have delivered spinach contaminated by Listeria monocytogenes.  Listeria causes food poisoning and sometimes fatal infections — usually in children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. Symptoms of infection include nausea, headache, fever, stiffness, and diarrhea. Infections are especially dangerous among pregnant women, as they can lead to stillbirths and miscarriages. The recall includes Amy's vegetable lasagna, tofu scramble, enchilada verde, spinach pizza, brown rice and vegetables bowl, stuffed pasta shells bowl, and tofu scramble breakfast wrap. Click through to the FDA's website for the full list of recalled products. No illnesses have been reported, and this recall is voluntary, not FDA-mandated; Amy's isn't taking chances. Thankfully, Amy's macaroni and cheese remains safe for consumption, so your dinner plans may not be totally screwed.
