<Xeonspire> Er. All I said was, "Hi".
edit: On September 14th, 2006, the FDA warned consumers about an E. coli outbreak that was tied to bags of fresh spinach. The FDA reported that they received complaints from 19 states in the United States.   The FDA recommends that people avoid all fresh spinach until further notice.
The outbreak was traced to Natural Selection Foods, based in San Juan Bautista, California, and the company has voluntarily recalled products containing spinach. In a statement, the company stated that it's working with the FDA and state health officials to identify the source of the contamination and had stopped shipping all fresh spinach products.  
Since August 2, 2006, one person has died and 102 people have fallen ill, including 16 who suffered kidney failure after eating spinach suspected of being contaminated with the E. coli O157:H7, a potentially deadly bacterium that causes bloody diarrhea and dehydration.
On September 17th, 2006, the United States expanded the warning to avoid all fresh spinach.  Also, the Centers for Disease Control has now started to investigate the E. Coli outbreak. Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle formally requested the federal aid on September 15th. His office said the CDC will help assess the causes and the magnitude of the outbreak in his state.
