A popular brand of canned spinach sold in grocery stores around the South and Midwest is being recalled because it was mislabeled and may cause a reaction in people with peanut allergies, its manufacturer said.
Happy Harvest Spinach sold in 13.5 oz cans is being voluntarily recalled by Effingham, South Carolina-based McCall Farms, the company said Friday. The spinach was sold for retail exclusively at Aldi.
