E. coli in bag spinach

E. coliI guess it’s nice to see the good ol’ U-S-of-A getting into the spirit of Noche del Grito, but perhaps food-borne illness caused by raw vegetables isn’t the best Mexican tradition to adopt.

All kidding aside, pass the word. The FDA has issued a warning that bagged fresh spinach may be the cause of an E. coli outbreak. More details in the NYT story.

Yeah, I saw that on the news, just as I was finishing dinner. Which was a spinach salad. Which I had purchased in a plastic tub several days before.

Yikes. :(
