January 18, 2023 — Fullei Fresh has recalled certain Alfalfa Sprouts that were sold in Florida due to a risk of E. coli.
The recall was issued after the FDA discovered that a finished product tested positive for Shiga-Toxin E. Coli (STEC).
No illnesses were reported, but infections with STEC can cause serious food poisoning — especially for children under 5, elderly adults, and people with vulnerable immune systems.
The recall involves plastic clamshell containers of Fullei Fresh® Alfalfa Sprouts with Lot Number 336.
They were shipped to distributors and retailers in Florida between December 9 and December 23, 2022.
The lot numbers are printed on the 8-ounce retail packs and on 5 lb. bulk cardboard boxes in the barcode (the last 3 digits being 336.)
People who eat food that is contaminated by Shiga-toxin producing E. Coli may experience symptoms such as stomach cramps, diarrhea (which may be bloody), and vomiting.
In some cases, STEC infections cause life-threatening complications, such as severe dehydration or a type of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS).
