Organic Raw Carob Powder Recalled Due to Salmonella Contamination

Organic Raw Carob Powder Recalled Due to Salmonella Contamination
Hummingbird Wholesale in Eugene Oregon has been notified by its supplier of a recall of Organic Raw Carob Powder due to possible health risks related to potential Salmonella contamination.
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometime fatal infections in young children, frail, or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. 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.
Products in question were sold to processors and retail outlets in Oregon, Washington, and California and to the end consumer in Oregon in 20 lb boxes and 5 lb bags between the dates of 5/22/14 through 7/24/14.
