USA: Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture warns consumers about salmonella contaminated paprika
"We were notified today of the recall of the paprika spice in 2-ounce bottles distributed by Badia Spices, Inc. in Miami, Florida because salmonella was found in some of the product," Commissioner Irvin announced. "The Florida Department of Agriculture found the bacteria in its product sampling."
The spice recalled will have a sell by date of 11/02 and a UPC number 33844-00011 on the bottle. Any of the Badia Paprika with this identification should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund.
"The company began recalling the product in August," Irvin said, "but we want to urge consumers to make certain they had not purchased any of this particular lot before it was removed from grocery store shelves. Our department's sanitarians will be on the lookout for this spice during their grocery store inspections."
Symptoms of salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain and vomiting. Salmonella can cause life-threatening infections in people with weak immune systems, including children and the elderly.
