Even though tainted spinach has killed three people so far and sent about 80 others to the hospital across 25 states, shoppers aren't too concerned.
With warning signs posted in big, bold, red print for the past two weeks, you might think spinach is the new global killer. But Angie Dougherty, a strict vegetarian, says she's not worried about it.
"I just substitute or use other greens like lettuce and broccoli, and kale and other greens that have like what I would consider similar in nutritional value," said Dougherty.
Substitution is the key to get through this outbreak. The Clover's Market staff agrees with Dougherty's philosophy and says although spinach is a big part of their sales, this recall hasn't had a huge impact on their business.
"I think a lot of people are willing to adapt and kind of roll with the loss and just able to pick something else out, but I'd say there's probably some losses. People that are just used to eating spinach, and hey it's not available, so I guess I'll do without," said Bruce Topping of Clover's.
Topping says spinach will eventually reappear on produce racks, but you shouldn't worry about losing out.
"Collards and kale and chard and romaine are also very healthy so people can kind of use those for the time being," he added.
And for now that's exactly what Dougherty's doing.
"There are a lot of greens out there with iron and vitamins, and I'm assuming the spinach will come back, so, if anything it hurts my quiche," she added.
There's no word yet on when spinach be back on store shelves. But for now, don't expect to order spinach salads at restaurants until the FDA lifts its recall.
