The Spice Hunter Products recalled in 31 states due to Salmonella

Sauer Brands, Inc. is recalling certain The Spice Hunter Products due to potential Salmonella contamination. 

The Spice Hunter Products in question were distributed in Alaska, Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

Parsley is one of The Spice Hunter Products that has been recalled.

The recall was initiated after a supplier notified Sauer Brands, Inc. of the potential presence of Salmonella in specific lots of organic parsley that they provided. Those lots of parsley were used on two specific days in our production. 

The company is recalling other products produced on those same days out of an abundance of caution regarding potential cross contamination.

As of now, there have been no reports of illness to date related to these products. 

Consumers who have purchased The Spice Hunter products on this list are urged to avoid consuming them and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

These products come in clear glass jars marked with lot codes 20217C, 20220C, 20269C and 20270C on the white field on the label.

About Salmonella infections

Food contaminated with Salmonella bacteria does not usually look, smell, or taste spoiled. Anyone can become sick with a Salmonella infection. Infants, children, seniors, and people with weakened immune systems are at higher risk of serious illness because their immune systems are fragile, according to the CDC.

Anyone who has eaten any recalled products and developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should seek medical attention. Sick people should tell their doctors about the possible exposure to Salmonella bacteria because special tests are necessary to diagnose salmonellosis. Salmonella infection symptoms can mimic other illnesses, frequently leading to misdiagnosis.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection can include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food. Otherwise, healthy adults are usually sick for four to seven days. In some cases, however, diarrhea may be so severe that patients require hospitalization.

Older adults, children, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients, are more likely to develop a severe illness and serious, sometimes life-threatening conditions.

Some people get infected without getting sick or showing any symptoms. However, they may still spread the infections to others.
