E. coli outbreak; throw away your bagged spinach

Organic spinach is surely part of most of our fit diets, so please take a minute to look at the information about this outbreak of e.coli and the voluntary recall of spinach under several brand names.

As I sit here reading my email, I can literally see CNN.com’s list of states affected by this e. coli outbreak rapidly growing.

The Food & Drug Administration is warning that no one should eat bagged spinach, and advises everyone to throw it away. CNN sources note that washing the greens will not get rid of the e. coli bacteria.Natural Selection Foods is voluntarily recalling foods containing spinach, based on patient accounts of what they had eaten before becoming ill. They are sold under the brand names Rave Spinach, Natural Selection Foods, Dole, Earthbound Farm, Trader Joe’s, Ready Pac, and Green Harvest. See CNN for the latest information.
