Ready Pac Foods Inc. of Irwindale is recalling 702 cases of the baby spinach variety of Spinach Temptations 6 oz. bagged salads because they could be contaminated with E.coli.
The recalled products have use-by dates of July 4 with product code I1707B, IR127121, and, July 8 with product code I2007B, IR130373.
The items were sold in California, Washington and Arizona.
No other Ready Pac Foods products are included in the recall.
No illnesses related to these products have been reported.
Ready Pac says the recall is based on a confirmed positive result for E.coli in a random sample test conducted by the FDA.
E.coli is an organism that may cause diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.
Because it is still possible that products could be on store shelves, the recall extends to retailers as well as consumers.
