FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — March 31, 2015 — UNION CITY, Calif. — Due to receiving a recall notice from its organic spinach supplier because of possible Listeria monocytogenes exposure, La Terra Fina is expanding its voluntarily recall to include one lot of its 10-ounce Chunky Spinach Artichoke & Parmesan Dip & Spread as outlined in the chart below. This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution due to this product having been manufactured on the same production equipment on the same day as the Organic Spinach Dip.
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 in select retailers in the Midwest, West Coast and Rocky Mountain regions.
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 10 oz. products with the "best by" date below 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 to the place of purchase for a full refund.
