Local stores take recalled garlic powder off shelves

Five local stores have removed products manufactured with organic garlic powder from their shelves, following a voluntary recall from Frontier Co-op due to concerns of potential Salmonella contamination.

To date no illnesses have been associated with the products, according to a company news release posted on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website.

All products were sold under the Frontier, Simply Organic and the Whole Foods Market brands.

Most persons infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment. However, in some cases diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

“Garlic powder seasoning is an ingredient of many products, from soup broth to ranch dip” said Melissa Martel, director of the Department of Health & Human Services, Division of Environmental Health. “We want to make sure that the word gets out about this recall so that people can check their cupboards. If you have this, dispose of it immediately or return the listed products to the store from where they were purchased.”

Recalled products were sold in all 50 states and in some parts of Canada to distributors, retailers and consumers. For a complete list of recalled items, visit the California Department of Public Health’s website at www.cdph.ca.gov/pubsforms/Documents/fdbFrCOOP1n.pdf.
Consumer calls can be made to the company at 800-669-3275. For updated information, visit the FDA’s website at www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm438360.htm.
