Lancaster Foods announced on Friday, June 25 that its original bagged spinach recall in North Carolina has now expanded to include products sold in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
The bagged spinach, sold in 8-, 10- and 12-ounce bags with "best enjoyed by" dates of June 19 through June 27, has been tested by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and found to contain Listeria bacteria. Pregnant women and persons with immunocompromised systems can become very ill from Listeria.
Lancaster Foods bagged spinach sold under the names Krisp-Pak Ready to Eat Hydro-Cooled Fresh Spinach, Krisp-Pak, Lancaster Fresh, Giant and America's Choice are part of the recall.
Framingham-area grocery stores sell Lancaster Foods' products, but as of June 26 the recall does not affect products sold in Massachusetts. For more information about the recall, contact Lancaster Foods directly at 800-247-8125.
