Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past week or so, you know that there’s been an e.coli outbreak associated with fresh, bagged spinach. I’d been wondering what was up with that, since e. coli doesn’t just come out of nowhere and attack spinach; there had to be a means of contaminating the spinach in a big, big way.

There’s a good post here that discusses the outbreak and the implications not just for growers/consumers of spinach, but all salad greens, carrots, and other vegetables — anything that you buy pre-washed, in bags.

Good stuff to think about.

  1. Hey,

    Love, love, love that you are regularly posting again, but after the dark depths of the original metrocake and the ultramegawow, what’s with this bright, cheery, scripty blue? I miss the dark undertones that put the metro in cake, the ultramega in the wow. At least I would have expected green….

    Glad you switched back. Means a lot of healing has been done.
