Spinach Update

Update on the spinach. It is not just Spinach labeled Natural Selection Foods but a whole bunch of brands, not all of which are listed below. Trust none and be careful of all these salad blends available today. I would trust nothing leafy in a bag. A lot of this stuff is probably packaged using the same equipment. Of course, there is always the chance of getting some bad bugs from fresh produce but in this case it might be prudent to avoid all this stuff. It is convenient but it is not very economical and you'll save some money if you buy your lettuce and leafy veggies "on the hoof" as it were.

From CNN

Meanwhile, Natural Selection Foods voluntarily recalled its products containing spinach and is cooperating with federal and state health officials to identify the source of the contamination. Its products are sold as Rave Spinach, Natural Selection Foods, Dole, Earthbound Farm, Trader Joe's, Ready Pac and Green Harvest, among other brand names.
