Artichoke dip the latest product to be recalled over contaminated spinach
DENVER — Artichoke dip sold at Costco stores in the Rocky Mountain region has been recalled due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, the manufacturer said Thursday.
La Terra Fina has recalled its 10-ounce Chunky Spinach Artichoke & Parmesan Dip & Spread after a supplier told the company that it may have provided them contaminated spinach, the company said.
The affected dip shows the UPC code 6-40410-51327-3 and the best-by date of April 5, 2015.
The recall is happening “out of an abundance of caution” due to this product having been manufactured on the same production equipment on the same day as La Tierra Fina’s Organic Spinach Dip, which has also been recalled.
Recently, Amy’s Kitchen Inc. also recalled food over possible listeria-contaminated spinach supplied by a third party.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
To date, there have been no confirmed cases of illness in relation to these products. Consumers who have purchased these products were urged to discard or return to the place of purchase for a full refund.
