Carmel Food Group, a CA firm, issued a recall of certain Rising Moon Organics frozen Ravioli items because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, deadly bacteria that cause meningitis, pneumonia, pancreatitis and other severe infections throughout the body.

The recalled frozen ravioli products were made with organic spinach which was found in test results performed by the spinach supplier to show the presence of Listeria. Carmel Group issued the recall when it discovered that certain lots of the listed items were produced with the potentially contaminated spinach.
