Taylor Farms is recalling 3,265 cases of salad blends that it believes could be contaminated with salmonella.

Taylor Farms issued the recall Oct. 19 after a random test conducted by a Washington Department of Agriculture inspector discovered salmonella in one of its spinach bags, according to a news release.

The recalls involve a variety of bags and brands, including 5-, 8-, 9-, 10- and 15-ounce bags of leafy romaine, romaine hearts, romaine blend, spinach, spring mix, Caesar salad, Asian salad, field greens and other mixes that have Oct. 18-21 “sell-by” dates. Labels include Wal-Mart's Marketside and Kroger's Fresh Selections.

The bags went to retailers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Puerto Rico, according to the release.

The recall involves no other products or code dates and no one has reported becoming sick, according to the release.

I ate a small salad made from the 10 oz bag of Romaine Blend yesterday. I thought my stomach was upset because I ate in a hurry, I am a senior and I felt sort of ill the rest of the day and evening and canceled my evening dinner plans.

Can't be the salad. Take symptoms longer to show.

Rob: Are you a scientist? Viette Johnson: Just call Attorney Bill Marler.

Before contacting anyone check the most reputable source of information on food borne illness - the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Look at http://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/ for more information.

People are trying to take advantage of the situation. The symptoms don't develop in 5 minutes. It is very easy to blame the salad just because Taylor Farms is under a recall. It doesn't necessary mean all of their salads are contaminated. I'm not saying you are lying or that I'm a scientist but the systoms take 12 to 72 hours to develop. You should check what else you ate before blaming the salad.

It depends on your health precondition. I had several food poisenings and if I eat something that's poisened it takes about 30 minutes and can feel I get sick. I found out by taking colloidal silver immedientely it gets rid of the bugs and I don't get too sick. Of course to get so sick you are need to go to a hospital takes a few hours or days longer. From the time of eating and not feeling good until being deadly sick is a longer way.
