Latest Food Recalls

Just in case you are not paying attention. There are two new food recalls. One for bagged spinach and one for frozen bison meat. If you use such products pay attention.

Ready Pac Foods Inc. is recalling bagged spinach sold under "Ready Pack Baby Spinach" and "Spinach Temptations" in California, Washington and Arizona because of possible E. coli contamination, although no illnesses have been reported. The recalled products have a use-by date of July 4 (product code I1707B or IR127121) and July 8 (product code I2007B or IR130373).

Rocky Mountain Natural Meats is recalling 66,000 pounds of ground and tenderized steak bison products after an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak was linked to the products. Five cases in Colorado and one case in New York have been attributed to the bison products. E. coli O157:H7 can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in severe cases, kidney failure.
