Missouri woman contaminated with E coli from Sam’s Club spinach

This week ABC News reported a voluntary recall by Taylor Farms for select Organic Baby  Spinach products with the potential to be contaminated with E. coli.

The recall was issued as “a precautionary measure” and affects two brands  sold in Arizona.  The affected products include five-ounce packages of Simple Truth Organic  Baby Spinach with UPC 0-11110-91128-5 and “Best By” date of 2/24/2013, as well  as 16-ounce trays of Taylor Farms Organic Baby Spinach with UPC 0-30223-04780-3  and “Best By” date of 2/24/2013.

It turns out that these same UPC codes have been linked to Sam’s Club stores in Missouri and have contaminated at least one woman.  The confirmed case involves an elderly woman who has now been hospitalized for over a month with E coli.
