The Pennsylvania State Health Department have just announced a case of E. coli in Pennsylvania, with a potential link to the nationwide alert about contaminated spinach.
Officials tell CBS 3 that the link falls into the same critical time-frame of the last week of August. During that time, the victim may have eaten fresh spinach sold packaged in a bag.
Health officials will not confirm where in Pennsylvania this happened, only that the person is recovering. In the meantime, they are warning consumers not to eat fresh bagged spinach and advise them to throw out any of the suspected produce that may be in their homes.
