Consumer Alert - Contamination
From Associated Press via Raw Story comes a report that fresh spinach from California is being recalled for possible salmonella contamination.
There were no immediate reports of illness linked to the tainted spinach, distributed by Metz Fresh LLC of King City, Calif.I can't help wishing that some of the idiots who recommended closing down and defunding much of the enormous food and product safety monitoring agencies get some contaminated food and experience firsthand why we need our food safety monitored. Stumble It!
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.
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.
