      Rates of women who are opting for preventive mastectomies, such as Angeline Jolie, have increased by an estimated 50 percent in recent years, experts say.

While no illnesses have been reported, the El Segundo, Calif. company said Friday that it was taking precautions after one bag of spinach tested positive for listeria.

The recalled products have the "enjoy by" date of October 16 and were sold in Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market stores in California, Nevada and Arizona.

Listeria is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people or others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms can include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
