Baby Spinach Recalled


Washington, DC: Ready Pac Foods, Inc. Irwindale, CA, is recalling 702 cases of the Baby Spinach variety of Spinach Temptations 6 oz. bagged salads with Useby Dates of July 4 with Product Code 11707B, IR127121 and July 8 with Product Code 12007B, IR130373 because they could be contaminated by E. coli O157:H7.

The recall extends only to products with this Use-by Date or Product Code sold in the following states: California, Washington and Arizona. No other Ready Pac Foods, Inc. products are included in the recall.

Ecoli 0157:H7 is an organism that may cause diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.

Because it is still possible that products bearing the Use-by Dates of July 4 and July 8 with the above Products Codes could be on store shelves, this recall extends to retailers as well as consumers. Ready Pac believes that it is important to alert consumers and retailers who might still possess one of the potentially affected salads to dispose of it immediately.
