Worries over possible E. coli contamination have lead to a recall of pre-packaged spinach in 39 states, including Arizona.

The spinach is sold under several names, but Arizona shoppers should look for the Simple Truth Organic and Taylor Farms Organic brands.

5 ounce and 16 ounce trays with the sell by date of Feb. 24th are being recalled.

Symptoms of an infection include diarrhea and abdominal cramps.  Contact your healthcare provider if symptoms last more than two days or if accompanied by high fever, blood in the stool or vomiting.  Infections can be mild to life-threatening.

So far, there are no reports of anyone getting sick.

    "Get on Up" is in theaters now. The film chronicles the career of James Brown, who had a special connection to Harlem and New York. Billy Mitchell is the in-house historian at the historic Apollo Theater. He says the Apollo was a second home to Brown, as it was here where he became an international superstar who appealed to all. But Brown's NYC legacy stretches even further.
