4EARTH FARMS, LLC VOLUNTARILY RECALLS LIMITED AMOUNT OF
KALETTES™ (aka KALE SPROUTS) BECAUSE OF POSSIBLE HEALTH RISK

NOVEMBER 6, 2014: 4EARTH FARMS of Los Angeles, CA is voluntarily recalling a limited number of Kalettes™, also known as Kale Sprouts, due to the potential of being contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. To date, no illnesses have been linked to this recall. No other 4 Earth Farms products are included in this recall.

On November 4, 2014 4EARTH FARMS was notified by its third-party laboratory testing service that an internal sample taken at its packaging facility on October 30 had tested positive for listeria monocytogenes. The sample and subsequent testing are part of the company’s routine testing protocols. Upon learning of the test result, the company contacted its customers and issued this voluntary recall.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 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 recalled product was shipped directly to Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Markon for foodservice, and XXX in (need states affected)
from XX/XX/XX to XX/XX/XX.

Anyone who has the recalled product in his possesion is urged not to consume them and should either return them to place of purchase for a refund or discard them.
