What is more important than our family’s health?
Weekly trips to the grocery store should be times when we don’t have to be careful or be afraid that the produce we select to feed our loved ones has been contaminated. Salinas, California produce company, Taylor Farms, specializes in producing salad products and fresh cut vegetables. Founded in 1995, on their website the company states that they maintain the highest standards for food safety, yet as reported by The Packer, a news magazine covering the fresh produce industry, one of their produce products is being recalled due to possible E. coli contamination.
At the Maryland law firm of Alpert Schreyer, our attorneys know that products we buy to consume are not always safe and want you to know if there are dangerous products out there capable of making your family members ill.
The baby spinach being recalled was packaged under various brand names including the following:
- Kroger Company’s “Simple Truth Organic” brand
- Wal-Mart “Marketside Organic brand”
- “Central Market” organics
- “Full Circle” organic
- “Taylor Farms” organic
The product was packaged in five and 16 ounce trays depending on the brand.
The possible E. coli contaminated spinach has the “use-by” date of February 24, 2013. According to the recall notice, the baby spinach was shipped to stores in at least 35 states.
According to the recall notice posted on the website of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), no one has become ill yet from consuming the spinach.
