Food Safety Act: five food recalls that rattled the industry
In August, 2007, fresh bagged spinach was recalled by California grower Metz Fresh LLC after a sample shipped to grocery stores and food service vendors tested positive for contamination. It was the third fresh spinach recall of the year.
The recalled spinach was sold in smaller bags at grocery stores, and larger bags shipped in cartons to food-service vendors.
Metz Fresh said it was able to track and hold about 90 percent of the more than 8,100 cases of tainted spinach that had shipped.
