Spinach recalled in Australia after more than 190 people had scary hallucinations

Food Standards Australia New Zealand Australian (FSANZ) recalled spinach which causes delirium and hallucinations, has affected more than 190 people across Australia. FSANZ recalled the spinach contaminated with unsafe weed, thought to be from a farm in Victoria. Symptoms can be severe and include delirium or confusion, hallucinations, dilated pupils, rapid heartbeat, flushed face, blurred vision, dry mouth and skin, and a fever. People are urged to check and dump recalled products sold at Woolworths, Coles, Aldi, and Costco. The supplier works collaboratively with Victorian Government authorities to understand how the contamination occurred. As of 18 December 2022, over 190 potential cases have been reported across New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, and Queensland. Investigations suggest that all affected products stem from a single plant source.​​ The Victorian grower at the center of the recall, Riviera Farms, said testing was underway on weed plants “which can have health consequences if consumed.” @ https://www.foodstandards.gov.au/industry/foodrecalls/recalls/Pages/Baby-spinach-recall.aspx
