The Food and Drug Administration announced that Frontier Natural Products Co-op has voluntarily recalled several of its products manufactured with organic black peppercorns due to possible salmonella contamination.
The products were sold under its Frontier and Simply Organic brands, Whole Foods Market 365 Everyday Value, Nature’s Place and a few others.
So far, no illnesses have been reported related to these products.
Frontier Natural Products Co-op stated that the potential contamination was found after a recent salmonella test returned positive results.
Initially, the product was steam pasteurized at the source and tested negative for salmonella, the company stated.
Salmonella, if consumed, can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Even healthy individuals infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
The recalled products were sold in all 50 states and in parts of Canada to distributors, retailers and consumers.
