Another Smoking Bag of Spinach

A bag of spinach bought in Utah in August has tested positive for E. coli according to the Associated Press. It’s the second bag in the country to test positive for the strain of E. coli linked to the national outbreak.

Meantime, the number of sick people linked to bad spinach keeps going up. In Utah, 17 people have gotten sick from E. coli. Now a bag of spinach one of them bought has tested positive for the bacteria.



Bad spinach is now being blamed for 171 illnesses in 25 states. So far, more than half of the sick people have been hospitalized, including a Wisconsin woman who died.



The death of 2-year old Kyle Allgood of Idaho may also be related, although preliminary test results were inconclusive.
