Organic Carob Powder Recalled Due to Salmonella

Earth Circle Organics Recalls Organic Carob Powder for Possible Salmonella Contamination
Earth Circle Organics, (River Canyon Retreat, Inc., dba) has been notified by its supplier of a recall of Organic Carob Powder due to possible health risks related to Salmonella contamination.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis.
