Wegmans Recalls Bagged Spinach and Greens Mix

'Feel Good About Organic Spinach & Spring Mix' might contain E coli.

Wegmans announced a recall of bagged organic lettuce Friday on concerns it might be contaminated with E Coli bacteria.

The recall includes 5- and 11-ounce bags of 'Feel Good About Organic Spinach & Spring Mix' sold from 10/14/12 to 11/1/12. 

The recalled products may be returned to the store for a full refund.

According to the Centers for Disease Control:

Escherichia coli (abbreviated as E. coli) are a large and diverse group of bacteria. Although most strains of E. coli are harmless, others can make you sick. Some kinds of E. coli can cause diarrhea, while others cause urinary tract infections, respiratory illness and pneumonia, and other illnesses.

Thanks for the catch, marion1. Not sure how that happened but it's been corrected.

I think we should just have a weekly "What's safe to eat" update.
