Amy’s Kitchen launches massive recall of over 73,000 products

(KRON) — Frozen food company Amy’s Kitchen is recalling upwards of 73,000 products after a possible listeria contamination.

The company received word that one of their organic spinach suppliers may have delivered tainted produce, which was used in Amy’s Spinach Lasagna, Enchilada Verde Whole Meal, Gluten Free Tofu Scramble Breakfast Wrap and Brown Rice and vegetables bowl, according to company officials.  All of those products are being recalled to avoid contamination.
