E. coli, the deadly bacteria usually found in raw, processed meats, has appeared in, of all things, bagged spinach. At press time, nine states had reported E. coli cases already, with more outbreaks possible.
Stores have begun to systematically purge their shelves of the leafy green vegetable after federal health officials said simply: "don't eat bagged spinach."
Officials also warn that washing the produce will not remove the bacteria. One death has already been reported in Wisconsin, which has reported 19 other cases of E. coli among its residents, 11 of which were reported in Milwaukee. Elsewhere, Connecticut, Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, California and Ohio have reported possible outbreaks.
