On June 26, 2012, the following products were voluntarily recalled by Banner Mountain as a precautionary measure:
- Organic sprouts under the following names: 4oz. zesty greens, 5oz. sprout salad, 4oz. clover, 2lb. clover, 4oz. alfalfa/broccoli, 4oz. alfalfa sprouts, and 1lb. & 2lb. alfalfa sprouts
These products were recalled because they may be contaminated with salmonella, a bacterium that can cause an acute infection with symptoms such as diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Symptoms usually develop within one to four days following consumption of contaminated food. According to the FDA, in some cases, symptoms in individuals may resolve without the need for medical help, but others may develop a serious illness that can lead to hospitalization. To date, no illnesses have been reported.
These products, distributed through retail stores and wholesalers in California, come in a 4 or 5 oz. clear, plastic, clamshell container and a 1lb. or 2lb. ziplock bag with a sell by date from 6/17/12 to 7/6/12. Anyone who purchased these products should immediately discard them. For a copy of this full press release, please click here.
