Attention, Spinach Eaters: Check Your Fridge for Recalled Greens!

If you have fresh spinach from Publix in your fridge, it’s time to take a closer look. Fresh Express has voluntarily recalled certain batches of its spinach sold at Publix stores. The reason? Tests showed there might be harmful bacteria called Listeria.

What to Look For:

  • 8-ounce Fresh Express bags with product code G332 and an expired use-by date of Dec. 15.
  • 9-ounce Publix brand bags with product code G332 and an expired use-by date of Dec. 14.

Check the front of the packages for the codes below the use-by dates.

Why the Recall: Routine testing by the Florida Department of Agriculture found Listeria in a random bag of spinach. Even though no one has reported getting sick from these batches, it’s better to be safe.

What You Should Do: If you have the affected spinach, throw it away. Don’t use it. The recall affects certain states, including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Why It Matters: Listeria can cause serious illness, especially in kids, older adults, and those with weak immune systems. It can even lead to miscarriages in pregnant women.

Stay Safe: So far, no other Fresh Express products are affected. If you have questions, you can call (800) 242-5472 for more information and refunds.
