Distributor recalling more salad products

September 26, 2006


— A Seattle company is recalling some salad products distributed in the Northwest because they may contain fresh spinach contaminated with E. coli, the Food and Drug Administration said Monday.

The recall, by Triple B Corp., involves products with spinach that may have been supplied by Natural Selections Foods, a California grower. Many of the 175 people sickened in the nation's E. coli outbreak reported eating spinach supplied by National Selections.

So far, 93 people have been hospitalized, including a Wisconsin woman who died, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday.

Two other deaths have been reported in suspected cases - a child in Idaho and an elderly woman in Maryland - but those cases are still being investigated.
