Salmonella is responsible for the latest spinach recall. California based Metz Fresh has issued a bagged spinach recall after testing uncovered Salmonella contamination. It is unknown how the spinach was contaminated with Salmonella.
There have been no reports of illness or problems related to this spinach.
The positive test came during independent lab testing Metz Fresh conducts on all of its products.
The company’s president said testing has changed in the last year. He said his primary concern is for the consumer.
Over 8100 cases of spinach are involved in the recall. Salmonella can cause food poisoning and is sometimes fatal. If you purchased the recalled spinach do not use it and return it to the store for a refund. Last summer there was a large recall of spinach due to E. coli.
