California health officials are warning people not to eat some bagged spinach grown by Taylor Farms Retail in Salinas after a package of spinach tested positive for salmonella.

California Department of Public Health officials said that the positive test was in Washington but that the products were distributed in California and several other states.

Salmonella, which usually lasts four to seven days, is an infection that can cause diarrhea, fever and cramping.

For further information, call Taylor Farms at (877) 323-7374.
