Spinach recall over E. coli

Posted By GABRIELLE LEVY, UPI.com   |   Feb. 13, 2013 at 4:35 PM   |   Comments

Feb. 13 (UPI) -- A California company has issued a recall for organic spinach sold nationally due to possible E. coli contamination.

The Taylor Farms spinach is sold under several brand names, including Central Market Organics, Full Circle Organic, Marketside Organic, Simple Truth Organic and Taylor Farms Organic, all with a best by date of February 24.

No illnesses have been reported in connection to the possible E. coli contamination, but anyone who has purchased the spinach is warned not to eat it.

According to the FDA:

E. coli poisoning is a serious and potentially deadly illness, typically transmitted using the fecal-mouth route by eating or drinking foods or beverages contaminated with E. coli, eating unpasteurized (i.e., raw) milk and (raw) milk products and untreated water. Common symptoms of E. coli poisoning include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting, nausea and headache. People particularly at risk for serious E. coli illness and complications are the very young, the elderly or those with compromised immune systems.
