More tainted-spinach cases confirmed in Maryland

Originally published October 24, 2006 by Nicole Fuller

Maryland health officials confirmed yesterday that two more people in the state were sickened by eating spinach contaminated with E. coli during a recent nationwide outbreak, bringing the number of cases in the state to five.  We expect that one more death will be added to the official column soon.  Again, the connection was DOLE baby spinach.
