organicgirl Produce Recalls Baby Spinach

We have yet another recall to report, and this one involves organic spinach. 

Salinas, Calif.-based organicgirl Produce is voluntarily recalling 336 cases of 10-oz. baby spinach packages because of potential salmonella contamination. 

The affected products have an expired use-by date of May 22, are labeled with product code 11A061167 and were sold in six states: Alabama, North Carolina, Oregon, Wisconsin, Arizona and California. 

None of the company’s other products are included in the recall. 

A random test conducted by an FDA-authorized laboratory found a single package of baby spinach was contaminated. No illnesses have been reported. 

Consumers who have a potentially affected package should immediately dispose of it. If you have any questions, call the organicgirl Produce consumer hotline at (831) ­758-7810 (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST weekdays). 

Retailers are being asked to check their inventories and store shelves to confirm that none of the potentially affected product is present or available for purchase.

    Very interesting, how do we know if it is contaminated? We are told to dispose of it if potentially contaminated.
