According to the U.S. Food & Drink Administration, Whole Foods has voluntarily recalled "various prepared foods items in eight states (including New Jersey) containing baby spinach because of potential contamination of Salmonella."

The recall includes baby spinach used at salad bars and hot food bars, as well as these prepared items sold in New Jersey stores:

Product Product Code (begins with) Sell by Date

 

  • Chicken Cordon Blue Panini 0236489 1/24/2019
  • New England Cranberry Turkey Sandwich 0236543 1/24/2019
  • Paleo Mediterranean Tuna Salad 0278786 1/27/2019
  • Spinach, Sauteed with Garlic CC 0262208 1/27/2019

The FDA says that "healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain."  There's good news, however, because no illnesses have been reported at this time.

If you purchased any of these items, you should discard them immediately.  You can also bring a valid receipt to Whole Foods stores and get a full refund.  If you have any questions, you are asked to call 1-844-936-8255 between the hours of 8am-11pm (M-F) or 8am-7pm (Sa-Su).

Whole Foods' New Jersey locations include Princeton, Marlton, and Cherry Hill.  For more information on the recall, click here.
