WASHINGTON — 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.

I DON’T EAT FROM SALAD BARS, PERIOD.....................
I will LOL if someone posts that “Oh, Jeez” picture.
Illegal aliens - pooping on the spinach crop that Americans won’t.
Amazing! Only four posts before some xenophobe brings up illegals pooping on the crops.
Probably picked by those careful, hard working, migrant agricultural laborers from south of the border.
Sure is a good thing we have cheap labor working in the fields and there are no health or safety consequences, eh ?
That’s like saying jumping off a 2 story building is less deadly than jumping off a 4 story building........
And only 5 posts before some open-borders apologist shows up to deny the obvious and throw racist charges around.
Isn’t it hilarious? Imagine the amount of poop in the field necessary to kill 3 people and sicken 200 across multiple state lines (in the E.Coli incident).
“Obvious?” Defined as, “I didn’t care to find out otherwise?”
I wish I’d seen this article before lunch. Just finished a Subway sandwich with spinach. Sigh.
Can’t take a joke, huh, Doc?
(AP) The likely source of an E. coli outbreak in spinach that killed three people and sickened more than 200 was a small cattle ranch about 30 miles from California's central coastline, state and federal officials said Friday as they concluded their investigation.
“Obvious” as in “statistically so likely that denial would be ridiculous.”
Spinach can be grown all year long inside.
Maybe he read your tagline? Just a thought.
Read comment #15 and weep, professor.
That makes me a xenophobe? What a silly concept.
