Salmonella Contamination Prompts Major Spinach Recall

Food

Before you make your lunch salad, better listen up. Dole Fresh Vegetables has announced a recall of its "Dole Spinach" bagged greens due to a possible salmonella contamination.

The recall affects the following 13 states: Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin. While no illnesses have been reported, the company says it is voluntarily pulling its popular product as a precautionary measure.

A random sample test conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development tested positive for salmonella.

All recalled products are coded A27409B and A27409A, have an "Enjoy By Oct. 15" date and the UPC 7143000976.

Retailers are pulling the product from shelves and customers are instructed to dispose of the recalled greens. For additional information, customers can call the Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at (800) 356-3111.

Under the guise of responding to consumer complaints that today's energy- and water-efficient dishwashers take too long, the Department of Energy has proposed creating a new class of dishwashers that wouldn't be subject to any water or energy efficiency standards at all.
