Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following health alert is from the FDA on May 27, 2010.

Organicgirl Produce, Salinas, CA is voluntarily recalling a limited number of cases of 10 oz organicgirl Baby Spinach with an expired Use-by Date of May 22 and Product Code 11A061167 because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The recall includes only 336 cases of the 10 oz. package size of organicgirl Baby Spinach with the Use-by Date of May 22 sold in six states: AL, NC, OR, WI, AZ and CA. No other organicgirl Baby Spinach products or other salads are included in the recall. The recall notification is being issued out of an abundance of caution due to an isolated instance in which a single package of organicgirl Baby Spinach was confirmed positive for Salmonella in a random sample test collected and conducted by a third-party laboratory for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. No illnesses have been reported in association with the recall. The precautionary recall action is being conducted to reach retailers as well as consumers although it is unlikely that any of the expired baby spinach products remain in commerce or on grocery store shelves. The recall notification alerts consumers who may still have a potentially affected package of the product at home to immediately discard it.
Consumers in the six states are being asked to check their refrigerators for the 10 oz. package size of organicgirl Baby Spinach with a Use-by Date of May 22 and Product Code of 11A061167. Consumers should not consume the potentially affected product, but rather should discard it. Consumers with questions may call the organicgirl Produce consumer hotline at 831-758-7810, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.
Retailers are asked to check their inventories and store shelves to confirm that none of the potentially affected product is present or available for purchase by consumers. organicgirl Produce customer service representatives have already contacted retailers in the six states affected.
