One of Amy's organic spinach suppliers notified them today that their product may have been exposed to a dangerous organism called listeria, the company said.

Amy's Kitchen described listeria as "an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems."

Some of the less severe symptoms of listeria infection, or listeriosis, include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck and nausea. Worse symptoms include miscarriages in pregnant women, bacterial meningitis, and extreme cases, death.

Just last week, three people were killed after eating listeria-infected Blue Bell Ice cream.

There have been no reports of infection yet, but the California-based company announced that anyone who has purchased one of the recalled products can return it to the store for a full refund.
