I live in Illinois and they just said to tell everyone not to eat

fresh baged spinach.  Someone in Wisconsin just died.

And 20 sick. You will get flu like symptoms. A bacteria.

This information came from my channel 9 news.

    Yes, on the news here too.  It's E. Coli . There are 1 dead and 20 sick here, but there are also 30 m ore sick in other states, as far from hjere at CT. So it's not just here in the midwest. I would advise anyone with bagged fresh spinach not to eat it. Better safe than sorry.

      Lottery Lady, this is true.  My in-laws were talking about it a couple months ago.  Somehow E Coli bacteria is getting into the bags and they can't trace it the point of origin.  Somehow the handling of the bags by the store personnel and/or shoppers is allowing this to happen.  Maybe it's on the outside of the handled bags and the user doesn't wash his hands between the handling of the bag and the handling of the spinach.  I know I never used to.  Now I just go to Wendy's.

            yes you should wash most anything you get from the grocery store. except letuce it will go bad if you wash it.

             

            i just read that spinach can make kidney stones in some people you may eat small portons of it but don't go overboard.

              Yes, four4me, that's why juicing is not always healthful if people don't know what they're doing. Although rarely have I read that someone got sick from good, healthful food and most people don't usually get sick from eating fruits and vegetables. Somehow this spinach was contaminated.

              What you're referring to are "oxalates" which are in many natural foods. Oxalates reduce calcium in the body. Chocolate is a very high oxalate food.  Decreasing the amount of animal food we eat can make a big difference.  Higher amounts of protein cause calcium loss in bone.

              I'm not a doctor, nurse, nutritionist or even educated in the medical field. I only knew about oxalates because I once bought a juicer, read some books on using it, and learned that I shouldn't drink a lot of spinach juice because of the oxalates. I also learned all the nutritional hype about spinach was exaggerated.  Cabbage is much better or you. It's loaded with antibacterial phytochemicals.
