More California-grown produce joined a growing recall on Tuesday, according the U.S. Drug and Food Administration.
Taylor Farms Retail Inc. initiated a voluntary recall of its organic baby spinach with the potential to be contaminated with salmonella after a random test conducted on a finished package of spinach.
Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
The spinach was sold in several states, including Oregon and Washington. Items subject to the recall include produce under the name "Private Selections," packaged in five-ounce clamshell containers, bearing a "best by" date of May 25, located on the lower right portion of the front label.
There have been no reported illnesses attributed to the recalled items, Taylor Farms officials said. No other products or code dates are affected by this recall.
Customers who have purchased the spinach are urged not to eat it and to throw it away. Anyone with health concerns from eating the produce should contact a health care provider. For more information call 866-508-7048.
