Breaking News: Nutmeg Recall
Slash Foods reports....
Two brands of nutmeg (sold in all 50 states) are being recalled voluntarily because they "have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella," according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Frontier Natural Products Co-op is recalling two brands: Frontier Brand Nutmeg (sold in 16 oz. bulk packages), and Whole Foods 365 Brand Nutmeg (1.92 oz. package), both originally supplied by Mincing Overseas Spice Company. According to the FDA press release, "Consumption of products containing salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain."
