Latest Spinach Update

Another bag of spinach found contaminated with E. Coli, this time in Utah. It too was a bag of Dole Baby Spinach, which also had been processed at a Natural Selection plant. It had a use-by date of Aug. 30.

Meanwhile, the FDA has changed the stance on their ban, rewording it to state:

Consumers are advised not to purchase or consume fresh spinach if they cannot verify that it was grown in areas other than the three California counties (Monterey, San Benito and Santa Clara) implicated in the outbreak. Other produce grown in these counties is not implicated in this outbreak. Processed spinach (e.g., frozen and canned spinach) is also not implicated in this outbreak

And if you can determine the counties in which your spinach was grown, you’re doing better than a great majority of American consumers.
