SoCal produce company recalls 700 cases of spinach sold in Arizona

Posted: Updated:

IRWINDALE, Calif. -- Southern California produce company Ready Pac Foods Inc. has recalled some 700 cases of bagged spinach salad that might be contaminated with E. coli.

The Irwindale-based company said Wednesday that no illnesses have been reported in connection with the Spinach Temptations line of six-ounce bagged salads it is recalling.

The recall applies to salad mixes with a July 4 use-by date and product code I1707B, IR127121 and to products with a July 8 use-b date and code I2007B, IR130373.

The affected products were sold in California, Washington and Arizona.

E. coli is a potentially deadly germ that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure.
