Amy's Kitchen voluntary recall (as of 3-22-15)
PETALUMA, California - Amy’s Kitchen, Inc. is voluntarily recalling approximately 73,897 cases of frozen entrees based on a recall notice from one of Amy’s organic spinach suppliers that Amy’s may have received organic spinach with the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
At this time, Outpost does NOT carry any of the products with lot numbers indicated in this voluntary recall. We are alerting our owners and customers as a courtesy.
Amy’s Kitchen is not aware of any illness complaints to date related to the recalled products identified in Attachment A. Out of an abundance of caution, however, Amy’s Kitchen is recalling these products based on the recall notice we received from our supplier.
The recalled products were distributed to stores nationwide in the United States and in Canada.
Amy’s Kitchen has notified its distributors and retailers and is taking this voluntary action as a precautionary measure. This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration.

Frontier Co-op voluntary recall (as of 3-17-15)
NORWAY, Iowa — Frontier Co-op announced Monday that it is voluntarily recalling dozens of products manufactured with organic garlic powder sold under its Frontier and Simply Organic brands due to potential Salmonella contamination.
The list of recalled products containing the organic garlic powder, along with label photos, can be found here.
To date, no illnesses have been associated with these products. Recalled products were sold in all 50 states and in some parts of Canada to distributors, retailers and consumers.
The product in question was raw material received by Frontier, which tested positive for Salmonella during a test by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Given that Salmonella may be present, Frontier immediately initiated this recall.
The company stated that it was immediately initiating added precautions to the safety of the supply chain and instituting additional product testing beyond FDA guidelines to mitigate any future occurrence.
