Officials consider spinach labeling plan
Like fine wine and cheese, spinach could be labeled with a place of origin to reassure shoppers jittery about an E. coli outbreak linked to leafy greens grown in California, says health officials.
Federal health officials told The Associated Press that more explicit labeling was just one proposal under consideration for allowing fresh spinach back on the market.
Others include stepped-up regulation of how spinach is grown and processed.
