July 3, 2023 — The FDA put three types of spices from India on an Import Alert after they tested positive for Salmonella.
The following spices may be contaminated with Salmonella:
- Everest Garam Masala (100-gram boxes, coded U25D390373, with UPC: 8 901786 101009)
- Everest Sambhar Masala (100-gram boxes, coded U04D384296, with UPC: 8 901786 081004)
- Maggi Masala ae Magic (6-gram boxes, 20640 455AA)
The FDA issued a Public Health Alert for certain boxes of Everest Garam Masala, Everest Sambhar Masala, and Maggi Masala ae Magic spices, which were not supposed to be distributed in the U.S.
Instead, they were imported to the U.S. by Amin Trading Agency LLC, a company based in New Jersey. The manufacturer said that the spices were sourced from Indian markets and re-sold in the U.S.
The spices were distributed after March 16, 2023 to stores in 11 states: Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Maryland, Tennessee, Texas, Mississippi, Florida, Virginia, New Jersey and New York, according to the FDA.
No infections with Salmonella were linked to the spices. Even so, people who consume or come in contact with the spices could potentially get sick, with symptoms such as fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, or severe complications.
