    Exclamation Another Spinach Recall

    A California produce company recalled bagged fresh spinach Wednesday after it tested positive for salmonella.

    There were no immediate reports of illness linked to the tainted spinach, distributed by Metz Fresh LLC of King City, Calif. The recall comes nearly a year after an outbreak of another pathogen, E. coli, in fresh spinach killed
    three people and sickened another 200.

    The recalled spinach was distributed throughout the 48 states and Canada and sold in both retail and food service packages. It covers 8,118 cases of spinach, although the company said more than 90 percent of that was on hold and would not be released.

    While only a single sample from one of three packing lines tested positive for salmonella, the company said it moved to recall all the spinach packed that same day as a precaution.

    The recall covers 10- and 16-ounce bags, as well as 4-pound cartons and cartons that contain four 2.5-pound bags, with the following tracking codes: 12208114, 12208214 and 12208314.

    Consumers with questions can contact Metz Fresh at 831-386-1018.

    Remember to remove your leaded jewelry before you meet up with the toilet.

    Aww, JBean, hopefully it is just from the mention of it and not anything real. Let us know how you are.

    A fish store has "activated carbon" which is the same stuff they make you drink at the hospital to clear out stuff from your stomach. Might want to consider a shopping trip. Good luck!!!

    My daughter had some and seems fine, but I'll give the rest to my Iguana.
    FUN... is a renewable resource!

    This post is my opinion only, and is subject to making me look totally confused

    Thank you EL and Glitch, I was just making a funny about our recent scares. I am really fine, no chopsticks, no spinach.
