Several stalks of this plant with serrated leaves and small yellow flowers were mixed in a bag with some supposedly ready to cook spinach. What is it, and is it edible?

It is a weed called Gallant Soldier which is a corruption of its latin name, Galinsoga parviflora.

More info. Verify and then verify again before eating but if you can positively ID looks interesting.
