Should I wash bagged spinach before eating it?

Yes. Although bagged spinach is "prewashed," it may harbor bacteria due to processing activities that involve handling. The more handling involved, the greater the likelihood of introducing pathogenic bacteria to a product. Rinse all ingredients well before eating.
