Another day, another salad ruined by the threat of salmonella contamination. Friday, Church Brothers, LLC has issued a recall for 560 bags of clipped spinach as a precautionary measure after one bag tested positive for Salmonella during a random USDA Microbiological Data Program sampling. So far no illnesses have been reported.

The recalled spinach was processed on October 6, 2011 and shipped in 2.5 pound bags to Super King Markets here in Los Angeles.

The bagged spinach affected by this recall was available for sale beginning October 7, 2011 and has a “best if used by” date of 10/23/11.

The recalled 2.5 pound bags of clipped spinach were in clear packaging and marked as follows: Best By Date 10/23/2011; Manufacturer Code A279 47166

If you've got such a bag of spinach awaiting use for a weekend lunch or dinner, get rid of it.
