Recent recalls covered everything from spinach to meat to children's snacks

MONDAY, Jan. 14 (HealthDay News) -- In a little less than a year and a half, the list of tainted foods has become as varied as it is long.

And the impact on people is stark:

  • An E. coli bacteria outbreak in bagged fresh spinach grown in California by Natural Selections killed three people and sickened more than 200 others in 26 states and Canada.
  • Salmonella in batches of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter, made by ConAgra Inc., sickened 625 people in 47 states.
  • Salmonella-tainted tomatoes served in restaurants sickened 183 people in 21 states and Canada.
  • E. coli-contaminated lettuce from California served at two Taco John's restaurants in two states sickened 80 people.
  • An E. coli outbreak in iceberg lettuce used by the Taco Bell chain sickened more than 70 people in five northeastern states.
  • A salmonella-contamination warning was issued for all Banquet chicken and turkey pot pies, made by ConAgra, after 139 cases of infection appeared in 30 states.
  • A nationwide recall of a children's snack, Veggie Booty, by Robert's American Gourmet Food Inc., followed 52 reports of salmonella illness in 17 states, mostly involving children under 10.
  • Reports of 25 illnesses from E. coli prompted the Topps Meat Co. to issue a nationwide recall of 21.7 million pounds of ground beef products, one of the largest meat recalls in U.S. history.
  • General Mills recalled 3.3 million pounds of frozen meat pizza products following reports of E. coli contamination sickening 21 people in 10 states.
  • Cargill Inc. recalled more than 800,000 pounds of ground beef distributed through Sam's Club after E. coli poisoning sickened at least four children.
  • Cargill issued a nationwide recall of more than 1 million pounds of ground beef sold to top supermarkets, because of potential E. coli contamination.
  • Castleberry Food Co. recalled more than 90 products, including children's snack foods, because of potential botulism contamination.
  • Kraft's recalled 24,000 cases of white chocolate baking squares because of potential salmonella contamination.
