Calling all Whole Foods shoppers: check your refrigerators because the grocery store is recalling various prepared food items containing baby spinach due to salmonella concerns. The recall was announced by the Food and Drug Administration on Jan. 24, one day after New York-based wholesaler Satur Farms reported the possibility of a contamination in its leafy greens.
The affected products include salads, sandwiches, pizzas, burritos, and more, and were sold at Whole Foods stores located in the following eight states: Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. You can check out all 55 recalled products on the FDA's website.
As a refresher, salmonella can cause symptoms like diarrhea, fever, and nausea, so although no illnesses have been linked to this recall yet, you may want to toss any food products containing spinach that you bought from Whole Foods before Jan. 23 just to be safe. Oh, and if you did purchase one of the 55 potentially contaminated items, be sure to bring your receipt back to Whole Foods for a full refund.
