Recall: Amy's Kitchen recalls thousands of frozen meals

Publish date:

Nearly 74,000 cases of Amy's Kitchen frozen meals are being voluntarily recalled by the company over a possible listeria risk.

Amy's, which is based California, said in a news release one of its suppliers notified the company some organic spinach with the possible presence of listeria monocytogenes may have been delivered.

Amy's hasn't been made aware of any reports of illnesses or complaints, the company said, and is issuing the recall "out of an abundance of caution."

Consumers who have any of the products identified below are urged to dispose them or return them to the store where they were purchased for an exchange or full refund. You can also call Amy’s at 1-866-672-0626.

Consuming a product contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, pregnant women, newborns and adults with weakened immune systems, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

Amy's or Annie's?

Amy's Kitchen, by the way, is not to be confused with Annie's –the organic food company bought by General Mills last fall, that uses a little rabbit as its mascot.

Both are marketed similarly (as a healthier option containing organic ingredients), but the two are indeed different. If you got them mixed up, you wouldn't be alone.

When Annie's was bought by General Mills, Amy's issued a release clarifying who was purchased.

Wrote Amy's:

"Customers were confused about whether it was Annie’s or Amy’s that had been purchased.

'It was definitely not Amy’s,' said Andy Berliner, co-­founder of Amy’s Kitchen. A sigh of relief came from Amy’s fan base as the confusion was cleared and they were reassured that Amy’s will continue to produce their organic and non-­GMO favorites as always."
