Side note, I HATE kale. I have tried to like it so many times because of its health benefits, but I just can't. Anywho...

The good news, if there is any, about this recall is that the products in question are past their “Best If Used By Date”. However, people may still have them in their refrigerators. Lancaster Foods is voluntarily recalling Robinson Fresh, Lancaster, and Giant brand Kale, Spinach, and Collard Green products. The products were produced at the company’s Jessup, Maryland facility.

Kale, Spinach, And Collard Green Products Potentially Contaminated With Listeria Monocytogenes

The products have a possible health risk from Listeria monocytogenes. According to the Centers For Disease Control,

Listeriosis is a serious infection usually caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. An estimated 1,600 people get listeriosis each year, and about 260 die. The infection is most likely to sicken pregnant women and their newborns, adults aged 65 or older, and people with weakened immune systems.

The New York Agriculture and Markets Food Safety Division tested a random sample of a single bag of Chopped Kale Greens product with a “BEST IF USED BY May 1 2023." The product tested positive for the Listeria pathogen, which is what prompted the recall.

The affected products were distributed in New York State, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
