E Coli Infection

    E. coli has been linked to a California spinach processor that has killed one person and sickened nearly 100 others. Twenty-nine people have been hospitalized, 14 of them with kidney failure. FDA officials said they had received reports of illness in 19 states.

    Spinach has been removed from supermarket shelves, and consumers have tossed out the leafy green. So far only one company has been implicated, Natural Selection Foods, which distributes spinach under the Earthbound Farm and other brands. However, the government is investigating other companies too, and it is believed other brands may also be implicated.
