"I will not eat spinach or frozen spinach or any leafy green vegetables now," said Diane Vincent, who spoke outside a grocery store not far from Dunning's home.
"Everybody I know eats the bagged spinach," she said. "I had tons of it in my freezer."

Fred Burger, 67, a resident of Durban, South Africa, who is visiting his son in Hagerstown, said he got sick Sept. 11, a day after he ate a spinach salad in a Pennsylvania hotel not far from Hagerstown. "I ate it down to the last leaf."
