De Jong Bros. Recalls Spinach Because of Possible Health Risk
Date:5/1/2009

LANSING, Ill., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- De Jong Bros. Farms, Incorporated of Lansing, Illinois, is recalling its curly leaf spinach packages sold in 2.5 pound, 5 pound and 10 oz. bags because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The bags were labeled with use by dates 04/24/09 through 04/28/09.

The recalled spinach was distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Missouri through grocery stores and restaurant wholesalers and carried lot codes K54 or K54A. Consumers who have purchased these lot codes K54 or K54A De Jong Bros. Quality Fresh curly spinach are urged to dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and individuals with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

"We are naturally concerned with continuing to ensure the safety of our consumers," said Matthew De Jong, Vice President of De Jong Bros. Farms. "Our actions are intended to remove all potentially harmful products as quickly as possible and eliminate any associated risks."

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 866-439-7347.

The FDA and De Jong Bros. Farms, Inc. are continuing the investigation in order to try to pinpoint the cause of the problem.
