If you live in one of the 39 states listed below, you may want to check your spinach.
Taylor Farms Retail Inc. announced in an online statement that it was voluntarily recalling some Organic Baby Spinach products due to possible contamination with Enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC), a bacteria that can cause severe infection leading to abdominal cramps, vomiting and (sometimes hemorrhagic) diarrhea.
EHEC can also lead to a sometimes fatal disease known as Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, which causes kidney failure and nervous system problems, especially in children and the elderly.
The recalled spinach is being sold in the following 39 states across the country: Wyoming, Wisconsin, Virginia, Utah, Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, New York, New Jersey, Nevada, New Mexico, Nebraska, North Carolina, Montana, Mississippi, Minnesota, Missouri, Maryland, Louisiana, Kentucky, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Idaho, Iowa, Hawaii, Georgia, Florida, Delaware, Colorado, California, Arizona, Arkansas, Alabama, Alaska, Washington and Oregon.
The spinach that is being recalled is being sold in 5-oz and 16-oz trays under the following names: Central Market Organics, Full Circle Organics, Marketside Organics, Simple Truth Organics and Taylor Farms Organic. All the recalled spinach has a "best by" date of February 24, 2013, Taylor Farms said.
