Ready Pac Foods, Inc. is recalling 702 cases of bagged baby spinach that were sold in California, Washington and Arizona after the FDA confirmed a positive result of E. coli bacteria in a random sample of the spinach. The mention of a spinach recall brings consumers back to September 2006, when bagged baby spinach tainted by E. coli bacteria sickened some 200 people and left three dead in 26 states.
Spinach with the Ready Pac label was among dozens of brands pulled from store shelves in 2006 after federal authorities traced a nationwide E. coli outbreak to a San Juan Bautista processing plant that bags its spinach. The Ready Pac Baby Spinach, Spinach Temptations 6 oz. bagged salads included in the recall have use-by dates of July 4th with the product code 11707B, IR127121 and July 8th with the product code 12007B, IR130373.The FDA said some recalled bags might still be on store shelves, so this recall extends to retailers, as well as consumers.
The FDA is advising consumers to immediately dispose of the recalled product and contact Ready Pac Consumer Affairs to obtain a full refund. The FDA is asking retailers who receive the recalled product to confirm with their distribution centers and individual stores that no recalled products remain in their inventories or at their store locations.
