More from the press release:

Listeria is a common organism found in nature. Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea, which can arise up to several weeks after consumption. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

Customers who have these products should discard them and bring their purchase receipt to any Stop & Shop for a full refund. Customers looking for additional information may call

Stop & Shop Corporate Brands toll free line at 1-877-846-9949. Consumers may also visit our website at or contact State Garden at 1-888-841-6191 for more information. If customers have any health concerns, they should contact their doctor.

    Thanks for the heads up Stop and Shop recalling products on 1-25-11 that have a best if used by date of 1-15-11. I guess we can all sit around for several weeks and hope the best. As they say no sense in closing the barn door after the horses are out.

      Stop puting lettuce in a bag.

  2. DONNA GERBINO says:

    My family & I already ate the spinach and the spring mix!
    What do I do now, wait for us all to get sick!!!!

  3. Kathleen says:

    We also ate the spinach. What should we do?

  4. Estrella says:

    We ate the spring mix, but I;m not worried as we are very healthy people. I’m sure it will only affect very weak immune systems.

  5. Mary says:

    If you have a bag in your fridge that expired 2 weeks ago, I seriously doubt your going to eat it now…… has to resemble a brown soggy mess at this point.

  6. Jan says:

    This information comes WAY TOO LATE! Spinach consumed, container went out with recycling. However, did not feel well all of last week, so will check the internet for other symptoms. Experienced a great deal of intestinal distress… thought I had the flu!

  7. Cindy says:

    Buy fresh head lettuces and stop buying ORGANIC you do not know what products they use.

    Now i know why my stomach has been bothering me.
