E. Coli Linked to Calif. Grower

Article in today's Los Angeles Times -- E. Coli Linked to Calif. Grower, by Rong-Gong Lin II and Ashraf Khalil:

    Spinach from a large California-based farming operation has been tentatively linked to
    a widening bacterial outbreak that so far has caused one death and sickened 93 people
    in 20 states, health officials said Friday.

    One day after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommended against eating any
    fresh, bagged spinach because of the E. coli outbreak, Natural Selection Foods of San Juan    
    Bautista, Calif., issued a voluntary recall of all its packaged products containing the
    fresh greens. The company, which bills itself as the largest grower and shipper of organic
    produce in North America, also operates under the name Earthbound Farm.
