Spinach ... Recalled


I love spinach. I actually love eating greens. I can put spinach on any soup or even on my fish or just sauteed it. Any way I cooked it, I love it!

I just read a press release (dated Sept 18, 2009) from US Food and Drug Administration that Ippolito International, LP of Salinas, California is voluntarily recalling 1,715 cartons of bunched spinach, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

The voluntary recall is limited to 1,715 cartons. One thousand, five hundred fifteen of the cartons were packed in the "Queen Victoria" brand. This product was distributed to Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York and British Columbia, Ontario and Manitoba, Canada. It was distributed to retail, foodservice and wholesale buyers.

I bought two bunches of Spinach yesterday. I am glad that it is different brand from the one's that are recalled. I actually cooked one bunch tonight. I cooked it with garlic and butter and it was delish!!!

For more info of the recalled spinach please read the FDA Press Release.
