Rising Moon Organics Ravioli Recalled For Potential Spinach Listeria

rising moon organics ravioliYesterday, we predicted that more prepared foods that include organic spinach would be recalled in the coming weeks after a Washington state farm told informed its wholesale customers that routine testing had turned up Listeria bacteria in its spinach. While a link between these recalls hasn’t been announced, another all-organic product including spinach has been recalled: Rising Moon Organics frozen ravioli.

Here’s what you need to know if you’ve purchased New Moon Organics products: the varieties recalled are the Garlic & Veggie, Spinach Florentine, and Spinach & Cheese ravioli. They will have sell by dates between December 22, 2015 and January 20, 2016: check against the recall notice to be sure.

The companies involved and public health agencies do not yet know of any illnesses caused when people ate these products, which is good. Most healthy adults would notice just a brief stomach bug with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle stiffness, or a fever. That’s annoying and you might have to call in sick to work, but survivable. For young children, elders, people with compromised immune systems, the consequences are more serious: listeriosis infection is life-threatening. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriage and stillbirth in pregnant women.

If you purchased this product, you can return it to the store where you purchased it for a refund. If you have any questions about the recall, give the company a call at 510-429-0356.
