A California grower-shipper has recalled 1,715 cartons of spinach that may be contaminated with salmonella.

Salinas-based Ippolito International LP voluntary recalled bunched spinach distributed in 12 states and three Canadian provinces, according to a company news release.

The recall was announced after routine testing by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Microbial Data Program detected salmonella. No illnesses have been reported.

The recalled product includes 12-count and 24-count bunches bearing the Queen Victoria and Tubby labels and harvested Sept. 1-3. Product was packed in cardboard boxes, wire-bound crates and reusable plastic containers.

The spinach was distributed in California, Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, British Columbia, Ontario and Manitoba.
