Spinach-lovers beware: Taylor Farms Retail, Inc. is recalling Organic Baby Spinach after a U.S. Dept. of Agriculture test showed potential contamination with Salmonella. Taylor Farms is based out of Salinas, California.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Salmonella infections often result in fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain beginning 12-72 hours after infection.

The illness usually lasts four to seven days.  Salmonella can also infect the bloodstream and produce severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
