Napolitano: Arizona shouldn’t try to exploit spinach problem

Governor Napolitano says it’d be wrong for Arizona to try to gain an agricultural advantage over California because of the nationwide E. coli outbreak.

Health authorities are hunting the source of the outbreak in Arizona and numerous other states but are zeroing in on California’s Salinas Valley. California is the source of three-quarters of the nation’s fresh spinach crop.

Arizona farmers also grow spinach, and KTAR radio reports Napolitano was asked during her weekly news conference today whether Arizona should try to somehow take advantage of the situation for the benefit of the state’s agricultural situation.  She rejected that idea, saying she wouldn’t want to exploit the situation.
