Sprouts Farmers Market discovered the Listeria contamination during a random sampling of the spinach. The company said it has not received any reports of illnesses due to the recall. It also said it is conducting an internal investigation with National Frozen Foods to determine if all food safety standards are being met.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly adults, and those with a weakened immune system. Symptoms of the illness can include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Listeria can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.
