Salmonella Prompts New Spinach Recall

Spinach Recall

Check the fridge – your bagged spinach may look fresh, but it could lead to diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Metz Fresh has recalled bagged fresh spinach produced on three different packing lines at its California facilities due to Salmonella contamination.

The tainted spinach is sold at American and Canadian stores in 10- and 16-ounce bags. The following tracking codes have been recalled:

  • 12208114
  • 12208214
  • 12208314

The majority of the Metz Fresh spinach carrying Salmonella was stopped during shipping. However, some has still been distributed into the market and may pose a risk of food poisoning.

Salmonella may lead to such symptoms as abdominal cramps, diarrhea, fever, headaches, nausea, and vomiting. People with weakened immune systems may experience more severe results from Salmonella poisoning, including death. Spinach was the source of a major E. coli outbreak a little over a year ago that sickened 205 people and claimed three lives.
