Wegmans Spinach and Spring Mix Salad Recall 2012

An E. coli O157 outbreak has been linked to Wegmans Organic Spinach and Spring Mix. In response to this outbreak, Wegmans has recalled about 31,000 pounds the spinach and spring mix blend:

  • Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Organic Spinach & Spring Mix, 11oz – UPC: 77890-16411 – only product sold between 10/14/12 and 11/1/12; and
  • Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Organic Spinach & Spring Mix, 5oz – UPC: 77890-16437 – only product sold between 10/14/12 and 11/1/12.

The potentially contaminated spinach salad mix was sold in clam shell packages in the produce department of its stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts between October 14 and November 1. The product is supplied to Wegmans by State Garden, Inc. based in Chelsea, Massachusetts. Both Wegmans and State Garden can be sued for compensation, depending on the facts of your case.

The organic spinach and spring mix blend salad products have been associated with 16 reported illnesses in New York State from E.coli O157 H:7, which causes bloody diarrhea due to hemorrhagic colitis. This can lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), and/or thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpra (TTP). These are deadly diseases. Fred has represented children and adults who were sickened with E. coli-HUS and/or E. coli-TTP after eating tainted food, including spinach and other leafy greens.

E. coli symptoms usually appear about three days after exposure, but can range from one to nine days, so if you or a family member ate some of the recalled spinach and spring mix salad, you should seek medical attention if you experience any of the following:

  • Severe cramps
  • Watery and/or bloody diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Nausea or vomiting
