I was *really* upset when I saw the news about the spinach recall - not because a person died, although that is sad, but because undoubtedly EVERYONE will stop eating spinach now, and it is so healthy!! How many millions of people die each year from eating too much chocolate and junk food ... but if one person dies from eating spinach, it's going to affect millions of people who would have eaten it and have been healthy.

What do you think? Were you eating spinach before? Are you likely to stop now?

Hopefully they'll give us the "green light" to eat spinach again soon...

We had fresh spinach in every salad every day. We have not eaten since the e. coli outbreak and very likely will not eat it again.

I wonder how much this has to do with people not washing their spinach before serving? Even though the bags state "pre-washed," I've always had it recommended to me to wash the veggies again.

I'm holding off until they find the source and contain it, but once they do that - it's back on my plate! I just got to start eating the stuff again about a month ago, I'm not ready to give it up again!!!! <img src="/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

(Although my father will probably use this as a "logical" argument against spinach - but then he never ate it to begin with!)

Washing spinach won't take care of e coli - they said that you would have to boil it to handle this sort of problem. So it's not about washing at all.

They've given the green light again for all spinach other than that region of CA, which apparently is known in general for its issues. So I definitely am going to go back to eating fresh spinach, just from the east coast.

I would never stop eating spinach because of one death. Over 40,000 people die each year in car crashes. That's just in the US. I think unless we all say we're going to stop ever being in a car, that we can agree that spinach is relatively safe <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I think we should all do our part and start eating spinach again! It is SO healthy for you, and it's sad that the only veggie most people eat is a potato - in french fry form. We really need to get the world eating more healthy veggies.

I love, love, love, love, love fresh spinach, but I won't buy it now, not that I can find it in the stores anyhow.

In late 2003, when I was 29 wks pregnant, I got e coli from eating at a salad bar at a restaurant in orlando. It wasn't widespread but 6 people in town did get sick from eating at the same place (a national pizza chain).

I almost lost my daughter during that time and I have never been in so much pain and so sick in my entire life. Since then I don't do salad bars, I don't do pre-washed anything and when there is an outbreak I don't eat the item.

Meg - but the issue was in CA only and this is a known issue with this area of CA - for *all* things they grow. Rather than avoiding all spinach, you should avoid all Salinas County foods, and eat spinach from the east coast which has never, ever had any problems <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Snuggie - this was a 2 week long nationwide ban - it was removed from *all* shelves everywhere in the entire US. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
