UPDATE: Popeye Gets E. Coli

No one knows how a good portion of the nation’s spinach farms became a verdant, leafy forest for the bowel-liquefying E. Coli virus. But the good news is that one of the suppliers of bad spinach has been identified.

Stay clear of all spinach distributed by Natural Selection Foods.Natural Selection Foods supplies a huge amount of spinach to various resellers, including Dole, Green Harvest and Trader Joe’s. You can find the complete list of suspect spinach sellers over at Accidental Hedonist.

They aren’t the only suspects, so you should avoid any packaged spinach that has a “Best If Used By Date” of August 17, 200 through October 1st. Though it goes without saying that if your black, oozing bag of spinach has a best if used by date of over a month ago, E. Coli will be the least of your worries upon consumption.
