(Rochester, NY) -- Wegmans is recalling its organic spinach and spring mix salads for possible E. coli bacteria amid 16 cases of sickened people in New York.


The grocery chain says the recall covers five-ounce and 11-ounce packages sold from October fourteenth to this past Thursday.

Wegmans says consumers who still have the product in their refrigerators should throw the salad out and visit a store service desk for a full refund.

Symptoms of E. coli poisoning can include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and vomiting.

New York state health officials say four people were hospitalized and released.

Wegmans has several locations in Pennsylvania, including in Mechanicsburg, State College, and Allentown. The chain also has stores in Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Virginia.
