FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 24, 2015 – Union City, CA – Due to receiving a recall notice from its organic spinach supplier because of possible Listeria monocytogenes exposure, La Terra Fina is recalling the products outlined in the chart below. Following its voluntary recall of Organic Spinach Dip last Friday, La Terra Fina is expanding the recall to include these products that were manufactured on the same production equipment on the same day as the Organic Spinach Dip and are being recalled out of an abundance of caution.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. The recalled products were distributed to Costco stores in the Northwest, Midwest, Northeast and Southeast regions and Smart & Final stores along the West Coast only.
To-date, there have been no confirmed cases of illness in relation to these products. The FDA is aware that the company is undertaking this voluntary action, which is out of an abundance of caution for consumers’ well-being and safety.
Only products with the following "best by" dates are being recalled. The "best by" date for each product can be found on the side of the container. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to discard or return the place of purchase for a full refund. For more information consumers can call La Terra Fina at 510-404-5889 between Monday and Friday, 8:30AM - 5PM US PST.
