During the weekend, Whole Foods Market announced an eight-state recall of various prepared foods that contain baby spinach because of potential contamination with Salmonella. Whole Foods acted in response to an earlier recall of baby spinach and mesclun by Satur Farms of Cutchogue, NY.

The Satur Farms initiated its recall Jan. 23 following routine sampling by the Florida Department of Agriculture and New York State Department of Agriculture and markets. As of last night, it was not known if Satur Farms had supplied the implicated baby spinach and mesclun to other companies.

The affected Whole Foods products, including salads, pizza, sandwiches and wraps listed below, were sold at stores in Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. No illnesses had been reported as of the posting of the recall.

Affected products are labeled with a Whole Foods Market scale label and can be identified by additional information in the chart below. Additionally, consumers who purchased items containing baby spinach from the salad bars or hot bars at Whole Foods Market locations in the affected states should discard items purchased through Jan. 23.

The recalled Satur Farms products were distributed in plastic clamshell containers with Satur Farms brand name in retail stores in New York and Florida.

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. Others infected with Salmonella often experience diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.
