Whole Foods issues recall of prepared foods due to salmonella concerns

If you’re a Whole Foods shopper and love their prepared foods section (who doesn’t?), you’re going to want to read this. Whole Foods has recalled more than 50 prepared food items from stores in 8 states due to salmonella concerns. Fortunately, so far no illnesses have been reported.

Everything from salads and pizza, to sandwiches and wraps has been recalled. Pretty much any prepared food item that contains baby spinach from Satur Farms. The recall is for stores located in Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends any foods purchased through January 23rd from the aforementioned states, which contains baby spinach, should be thrown out. Whole Foods shoppers can take their receipt to their local store for a refund.

Salmonella is especially concerning for children and senior citizens. Pretty much anyone without a strong immune system. Contracting salmonella can lead to serious, and sometimes even fatal infections. Consumers can see a list of the affected Whole foods products by following the links below.
