Union International Food Co. has expanded its recall of sauces, oils, and oil blends sold under the Uncle Chen and Lian How brands.

The expanded recall is based on the investigation into the ongoing foodborne illness outbreak of salmonella rissen. It is in addition to the recall announced last month by the company of its dry spice products.

The sauces, oils, and oil blends being recalled were distributed to retailers, wholesalers, distributors, and restaurants in the states identified to date of Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.

The products were sold in containers ranging from 6oz to one gallon in plastic or glass bottles and are used as spices and seasonings for cooking and as table top meal seasonings.

The company said it has stopped the production and distribution of the products as the US Food and Drug Administration, the California Department of Public Health, and Union International Food Co. continue their investigations.

To date, 57 cases of illness caused by salmonella rissen have been reported, mostly in the western region of the country.
