Due to the recent recall of fresh spinach because of E. coli contamination, you may want to substitute 1 small package of frozen spinach for the fresh in this recipe. Thaw the frozen spinach then squeeze out all excess water using a clean kitchen cloth or paper towels before adding.
If you do use fresh, and the bacteria contamination is on the surface of the spinach, cooking fresh spinach at a temperature of 155 degrees F or higher for 15 seconds will kill E. coli, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services.
