The Center for Disease Control just added California to the list of states to be on the alert for tainted alfalfa sprouts, according to ABC. There have been 89 cases in 15 states in the past week and the FDA is advising the public not to eat alfalfa sprouts produced by Tiny Greens Organic Farm in Urbana, Illinois because of possible salmonella contamination. They've also warned the public to stay away from the Tiny Greens product "spicy sprouts." We're thinking maybe stay away from all the Tiny Greens leafy greens until this is sorted out.
