Spinach Recalled After Tests Find Salmonella

By Admin on August 30, 2007 10:18 AM

A spinach growing and shipping company in Salinas, CA is recalling over 68,000 pounds of fresh bagged spinach, after a routine testing sample of the spinach tested positive for salmonella. In a Press Release issued on Tuesday, Metz Fresh states that the affected spinach was packaged under the "Metz Fresh" label, in 10 and 16 oz bags, and 4-2.5 lb. and 4 lb. cartons, and bears the tracking codes 12208114, 12208214 and 12208314. The product was distributed nationwide and in Canada. Metz Fresh declares that it has received no reports of illness or other problems related to the recalled spinach, and advises consumers with concerns about the recall to contact the company 831-386-1018.

In September 2006, recalled bagged spinach contaminated with the e. Coli bacterium was linked to 205 confirmed illnesses and three deaths.
