If this is in your house, you need to get rid of it immediately. Do not consume and bring it back to the store where you got it from.

The Food Safety Authority are recalling bags of spinach from a whole host of supermarkets.

This recall is down to fact that Listeria monocytogenes was detected in a batch of spinach leaves.

The packets are on sale in Dunnes, Tesco, Aldi, Lidl and Supervalu as well as other outlets.
