Two Spinach Brands Pulled from Wyoming Shelves

Some grocery stores in Wyoming are pulling potentially contaminated bags of spinach off their shelves. A California company says bags of organic baby spinach it distributed in Wyoming could be tainted with E. coli.
The Salinas-based Taylor Farms Retail issued the voluntary recall earlier on Wednesday.
The brands of baby spinach that were distributed to Wyoming grocery stores were 5-ounce trays of "Simple Truth Organic" and 16-ounce trays of "Taylor Farms Organic."
Derek Grant with the Wyoming Department of Agriculture could not confirm which stores in Wyoming sold the brands of spinach. Grant added that the department had been calling every single grocery store in the state to inform them of the recall.
The spinach was also sold under 3 additional labels in 35 other states, including Colorado.
As Wednesday evening, there were no reported illnesses linked with the spinach. E. coli symptoms include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and in some cases fever and vomiting.
