Church Brothers Recalls Bagged Spinach

Screen Shot 2011-10-26 at 7.57.23 AM.pngChurch Brothers, LLC is voluntarily recalling 560 bags of clipped spinach as a precautionary measure after one bag tested positive for Salmonella during a random USDA Microbiological Data Program sampling. The recalled product was processed on October 6, 2011 and shipped in 2.5 pound bags to Super King Markets in Los Angeles, California. The bagged spinach affected by this recall was available for sale beginning October 7, 2011 and has a “best if used by” date of 10/23/11.

No illnesses related to this product have been reported and no other Church Brothers, LLC products are affected by this recall.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

    Convenient, how they waited until after the “use by” date to announce the recall. People, if you are going to test, you also have to HOLD!
    Listeria testing does not take 20 days for results, so some one knew about this at least 10 days ago and chose not to recall the product (yet). If people get sick, this company will soon cease to exist.
