Salmonella Concerns Prompt Baby Spinach Recall

Salmonella Concerns Prompt Baby Spinach Recall

Taylor Farms Retail Inc. is voluntarily recalling packages of organic baby spinach after a random sampling of the product by the USDA tested positive for salmonella contamination.

So far, no one has been sickened by eating the spinach and no problems have been reported. The organic spinach was sold in 19 states and distributed by Taylor Farms between May 9 and 10.

Salmonella bacteria can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps often within eight to 72 hours of eating contaminated food. This type of food poisoning can sometimes cause serious problems in young children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems.

Three specific products were affected by the California-based company recall.

One of them is 5-ounce packages of baby spinach sold under the label “Private Selections, Organic.” Products with the UPC number 0-11110-91128-5, package codes TFRS 130B and 1503 KT34, and a best-by date of May 25, 2012, were recalled. The best-by code date can be found on the lower right side of the front label.

A second item involved in the recall is 5-ounce packages of baby spinach also sold under the label “Private Selections, Organic.” Products with the UPC number 0-11110-91128-5, package codes TFRS 130B and 1803 KT34, along with a best-by date of May 25, 2012, were also affected.

These two spinach products were sold in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

This baby spinach product was sold in Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.

People who have bought the recalled items are advised not to eat them and to throw them out. More information about the recall is available by calling Taylor Farms Retail Inc. at (866) 508-7048.
