After a random sample turned up salmonella contamination in a package of its alfalfa sprouts, Green Valley Food Corp. of Dallas, has recalled nearly 7,000 cases of “Let’s Grow Healthy Together!” Alfalfa Sprouts.
The single 5 0z. container tested positive on Dec. 12 for Salmonella, which can cause serious and even fatal infections in young children, the elderly or people with immune-suppression conditions. Salmonella poisoning typically causes diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
