There has been another spinach recall yet again, this time, is from a Salmonella contamination.
You have no control over getting sick from the big producers.
This is one of the reasons why I think you need to start growing your food.
The Spinach Recall
On October 13, 2015, The Dole Company has recalled their baby spinach because it is contaminated with salmonella.
Salmonella is the foodborne illness that is associated with chickens. It can cause vomiting, diarrhea, cold sweats, fever, and dehydration.
Any foodborne illnesses are deadly to the young, the elderly, or anyone that has an immune problem.
With the big producers, it can be contaminated anywhere from the field, the picker, or even the bagging equipment.
Until some people get sick from it and it gets documented. It can take a few days to a few weeks to make a recall on it.
Then they can follow the trail back to the source where it came from.
This is the problem with buying your produce from the grocery stores. You have no idea if it is going to make you sick or even kill you.
What Can You Do About It?
There are 2 things you can do about it.
My favorite way is to grow your own from organic heirloom seeds.
I get my seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds out of Missouri.
This way you know where and how it was grown. You have almost total control over the produce.
It is the cheapest way to get your food.
It is very exciting when you sit down and eat the food that you have grown yourself.
