The FDA said on Thursday at least 52 people in 17 states had become sick after eating the green-colored snack food marketed by Robert's American Gourmet. The New Jersey-based company said it had temporarily stopped making and selling the snack, which contains spinach, kale and other vegetables.

Thanks for posting this, I just put it out to all my friends and family.

And what in the world is going on? Contaminated foods seem to be getting more and more common lately.
