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.
