Tainted Spinach Love

Posted By on Tue, Sep 26, 2006 at 12:03 PM

I made a big delicious spinach salad with cherry tomatoes and flecks of goat cheese the day before the spinach recall. Fortunately, I'm not one of the three people in Pima County who is infected. I was lamenting to a friend and wondering if I would ever feel safe eating spinach again, and she reminded me about the Tylenol and Jack-in-the-Box recalls and how they bounced back because the public has short memories. They also spent millions of dollars on good PR spin machines.

According to the FDA, the spinach implicated in the outbreak was grown in three Calif. counties: Monterey, San Benito and Santa Clara. Spinach grown in the rest of the United States has not been implicated in the current E. coli O157:H7 outbreak. On any given day, the FDA recalls something whether edible or not.

Can you imagine the panic if chocolate was recalled?
