Salmonella risk causes voluntary spinach recall

There is a random sample testing program in the United States that was put in place by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in order to maintain safeness of food products. One of these random sample tests was recently conducted using Fresh Express Spinach, and the results indicated that the spinach was positive for salmonella.

As a result of this testing, Fresh Express Incorporated has voluntary recalled a certain amount of its Fresh Express Spinach. The spinach leaves that are affected by the recall have a product code of S299B25, a use-by date of November 7, and come in nine ounce bags. No other products produced by the company are involved in the recall.

Customer service representatives for Fresh Express have begun the process of notifying grocery stores that carry the possibly contaminated spinach, and are making sure that the bags are not on the shelves for consumer purchase. According to Fresh Express, the spinach salad bags were mainly distributed in the western part of the United States.

Fresh Express has stated that consumers who are in possession of these recalled bags should not consume the product, but instead throw it away. The company will award these individuals a refund for the full amount of the product.
