Spinach Warning Has Been Lifted

The Food and Drug Administration has eased its warning about fresh spinach after the recent E.coli outbreaks.

The warning now only applies to specific brands packaged on certain dates.

Last week, the Food and Drug Administration said it was safe to eat spinach grown outside of three counties in California's Salinas Valley.

Farmers were also warned they better get serious about eliminating E.coli from their fields.

E.coli killed at least one person and sickened more than 180 people across the country.
