October 10, 2006: FDA Updates Statement on Foodborne E. coli O157:H7 O

With 199 reported cases of E. coli O157:H7 infection resulting from the consumption of raw spinach, the FDA today recommended that: “In order to protect consumers, retailers and food service operators should not sell raw spinach or blends that may contain spinach that were the subject of the recall.

Two elderly women, one in Wisconsin and one in Nebraska, and a two-year-old from Idaho have died during this outbreak. Illnesses have been reported in 26 states.

Investigation into the cause of the outbreak is still ongoing by the FDA, the CDC, the USDA, and the State of California. According to the FDA, all of the spinach implicated in the current outbreak has been traced back to Natural Selection Foods LLC of San Juan Bautista, California. On September 15, 2006, the company initiated a voluntary recall of the products. Four additional companies that received the recalled product from Natural Selections have issued secondary recalls.
