March 17, 2015 — Dozens of organic products sold under the Frontier, Simply Organic, and Whole Foods label are being recalled because they contain organic garlic powder that may be contaminated with Salmonella.
No cases of food poisoning have been linked to the products and the recall is “voluntary.” Contamination was discovered by the FDA in raw material supplied to Frontier Co-Op.
Frontier has responded by going above and “beyond FDA guidelines,” implementing additional testing of products in the supply chain.
The FDA warns that infections with Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems, the infection can be deadly or lead to severe complications:
“In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditic and arthritis.”
At least 39 products containing organic garlic powder have been recalled, including dozens of pre-packaged powdered spice blends, seasonings, and sauce mixes.
