Popeye's spinach came from a can. He should be just fine.

Several people were interviewed on the news while dining out last night. All insisted they would continue to eat spinach salads.

Hark! Do you hear something? Yes, it's the
scarecrow singing "If I Only Had a Brain."

I even threw away some frozen spinach I bought with eggs florentine in mind. I hope Popeye has a backup system, like maybe arugula or Belgian endive.

It's called callaloo people. Spinach ain't got nothing on that

This makes me sad. I'm not really big on vegetables -- I'm given to saying "Plants are what food eats" -- but I really do like fresh spinach. Sigh.

I don't think Popeye's gonna be sailing anytime soon. Bagged vegetables always seemed a little suspect to me anyway...

heart, that's nuts. There's this GREAT little green deli/grocery store around the corner from my office, and they put fresh spinach out for people to put on their salads. !!?

drew, I have never tried callaloo... something to put on my grocery list, if I ever prepare fresh food again...

andy, me too! Spinach is such a great veggie -- it has iron and a bunch of other healthful minerals (and we women need our iron), and it's tasty, too! Hurry up and figure this one out, FDA!

michael, yeah, I've always been a little weirded out by bagged veggies. I'll eat them for the convenience, but I'd much prefer to have the time and energy to eat fresh-cut stuff.

It's poor marketing, too. Unless they don't rely on repeat business.

Denial is no match for E-Coli.

Amen to Drew and the callaloo!

And I've never craved spinach so much in my life. All it takes is to tell me I can't have something.

I knew Bluto would finally get some payback...

It's long overdue.

Now if he can just get Olive Oyl's panties off...his jb will be done. ;)

LF, you'll prepare fresh food again, I have no doubt.

Think about it though, with the amount of food that gets pumped out of our respective farms, factories, etc, it's utterly surprising that this doesn't happen more often.

heart, denial's no match for lots of things it's used again, unfortunately...

katrice, thanks for the visit! I know EXACTLY what you mean. I probably ate spinach once or twice a week before this whole deal (which, granted, is actually pretty good I think)... now I want spinach salad every day! :(

steven, thanks for your visit too! I hope the little kiddies never catch on to his evil plot... ;)

drew, I hope so. It actually has more to do with laziness than fear. Er, I mean, lack of time. Yeah, that's it. Me, lazy? No way ;) Excellent point about the factories. Terrifying how "food" is treated in those places. Apparently health officials think this is an issue from the conventionally grown (i.e., more likely to go through a factory) rather than organic spinach. Hmmm, big surprise there...
