Garlic, Black Pepper and Cinnamon Recall: Salmonella

A grocery store chain has recalled four of it’s spices due to Salmonella contamination.

The affected spices are Garlic, Black Pepper, and Cinnamon. Since our readership is vegan it may not be affected by the fourth contaminated spice seasoning: Bac’n Buds (although I do believe it is vegan). This is a very serious threat, please don’t take it lightly!

According to foodsafety.gov

“Salmonella, the name of a group of bacteria, is one of the most common causes of food poisoning in the United States. Usually, symptoms last 4-7 days and most people get better without treatment. But, Salmonella can cause more serious illness in older adults, infants, and persons with chronic diseases. Symptoms include Diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps, vomiting.”

These spices were sold at Kroger food stores. However these spices were sold at stores by different names. They include Kroger, Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Foods Co., Fred Meyer, Fry’s, King Soopers, City Market, Smith’s, Dillons, Baker’s, Gerbes, Jay C, Ruler Foods, Pay Less, Owen’s, and Scott’s.
