Sprouts Farmers Market is recalling its Frozen Cut Leaf Spinach due to listeria concerns.

The recall affects both the regular and organic 16oz. bags.

According to the Food & Drug Administration, the product was distributed at locations in AZ, CA, NV, UT, NM, CO, TX, KS, OK, MO, TN, AL, GA, FL, SC, NC, PA, MD, and VA.

"Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women," the FDA said.

No illnesses have been reported.

Consumers with questions about the recall are asked to call 1 (888) 577-7688.
