Yep, heard that on the radio this morning. They think it's from the fresh, bagged spinach. It's contaminated/tainted with Ecoli. Been blamed for a death in Wisconson. They have a suspected case in Michigan, too.

They said if you've bought the stuff lately - get rid of it.

Many times, the farm where the spinach is grown also has cattle. Rain will wash the E. Coli-tainted manure into the fields, where it comes into contact with the spinach.

The same thing has occurred with Fresh Romaine lettuce.
