Toxic Weed Mixed In With Spinach Salads Causing Delirium, Hallucinations

  • Some 130 salad fans in Australia got more than they bargained for when picking up grub where contaminated baby spinach was an ingredient – including hallucinations and delirium.
  • Food Standards Australia New Zealand has yanked several products including packaged salads and stir fry mixes from shelves of retailers Costco, Woolworths, Aldi and Coles across New South Wales.
  • The tainted veg is thought to originate from Riviera Farms in Victoria and the problem is described as “potential contamination with unsafe plant material.”
