Why the Baby Spinach Was Recalled
The voluntary recall was issued after a sample of the baby spinach product tested positive for Salmonella during a random Department of Agriculture test in Michigan. Salmonella can cause serious illness, with symptoms that include diarrhea, vomiting, fever and abdominal pain.
