Elderly Tucson man recovering from symptoms of E. coli-tainted spinach
Late last week, the spinach industry came to a halt as E. coli bacteria has been found in pre-packaged bags of fresh — not canned — spinach across the country.
Arizona’s KVOA News 4 reported that The Centers for Disease Control is warning everyone to toss out any bags of fresh spinach, no matter what the brand.
Tainted spinach has been found in 23 states, mostly in the west, and now you can add Colorado and Arizona to the list. One person is dead, 146 people are sick and 76 hospitalized as a result of the contamination.
