If you bought this product, do not eat it, even if you plan to cook it first. You can throw it away in a sealed container in a secure trash can with a tight lid so other people can’t access it, or you can take it back to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you ate this spinach, monitor your health for the symptoms of listeriosis, which has up to a 70 day incubation period. Symptoms include a high fever, stiff neck, muscle aches, and a severe headache, which is often preceded by nausea and diarrhea. Pregnant women need to be especially careful of this pathogen since it can cause miscarriage and stillbirth even though the woman may only be mildly ill. If you do feel sick, call your doctor.
