Organic Baby Spinach Recalled Due to Salmonella Concerns

Organic Baby Spinach Recalled Due to Salmonella Concerns

Organic baby spinach, potentially contaminated with Salmonella, is being recalled after a random test conducted by the USDA.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly, and people who have a weakened immune system. In healthy people, it can cause fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea (which may be bloody), and abdominal pain. In rare cases the organism can get into the bloodstream and cause more serious complications. 

The recall includes:

Fascinating, the Heavy Hand Of Judgement is upon us! Every one is entitled to an opinion. There is even a school of thought going that if you eat fruit you must be sure to eat it apart from any other food such as veggies or toast or it will produce a toxic sludge in the gut and make you ill.

Yes, some do hold meat eaters responsible for everything under the sun but if you don't want to eat it go gnaw on organic broccoli. There are veggies grown in places that have no exposure to any form of cow or other manure and these veggies can still get bacteria.

Who invented animal manure as fertilizer, sorry, don't have the name, it began centuries ago. Also used in ancient cultures such as India for many purposes, ancient Egypt it was used for wounds...go figure...but until Mother Nature redesigns life on the planet where she decides that all organic life is sustained by eating rock pate and not plants, animals or any other living entity there will be food poisoning from all sources.

Next, meat eaters will be blamed for earthquakes and black holes in the universe.

Interesting, so many foods can become contaminated from so many sources and people often for get that leafy greens and other veggies can be affected as well.

Love to have my little container garden on the balcony. Note to pigeons: No bombing raids please. Can't always blame the meat eaters for contamination...

lovely...i remember the days when salmonella and e-coli, etc. were only found in animal products.

I will wager that the spinach was not grown in an Aquaponics setting. We suffer no such problems, as does soil born produce.

No Listeria, E-coli, no salmonella, far less pest problems, with one exception...Man.

Man and his cigarette smoking, it all leads back to Tobacco Mosaic and potential disaster.

Cow dung? Perhaps it should have just been screened for salmonella? Natural fertilizers are better than chemical ones anyway.

Ain't that the shits (pun intended)
