Salmonella Prompts Recall Of Green Onions

Comments Off

Several thousand cases of green onions provided by a farm in Mexicali, Mexico have been recalled due to fears that the onions may be contaminated with salmonella.

The bacteria was found during routine testing in New York last month, according to inspectors with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. To this date, there have been no reports of illness.

Officials notified the shipper, Salinas-based Steinbeck Country Produce. The company issued a voluntary recall Aug. 28 for 3,360 cartons.

The recalled produce was distributed in the following states: Arizona, California, Kansas, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New York and Texas.

Ocean Mist Farms also recalled several hundred cases after discovering they were from the same lot. The company wouldn’t say where its onions were distributed.
