Spinach Recall

Comments Off

Ready Pac Foods Inc. is recalling 4,200 bags of baby spinach due to possible E.coli bacteria contamination.

According to the company, no illnesses related to the products have been reported. However, E. coli is a potentially deadly germ that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure.

The six-ounce "Spinach Temptations" packages were sold in California, Washington and Arizona. The use by dates are July 4 with Product Code I1707B, IR127121 July 8 with Product Code I2007B, IR130373

In 2006, Spinach with the Ready Pac label was among dozens of brands pulled from stores after a nationwide E. coli outbreak was linked to a San Juan Bautista processing plant. That same year, Ready Pac supplied scallions that were suspected in an E. coli outbreak at Taco Bells.
