Alfalfa sprouts recalled due to salmonella presence

Alfalfa sprouts recalled due to salmonella presence

New York agricultural officials say some packages of alfalfa sprouts from Snow White Food Products I

New York agricultural officials say some packages of alfalfa sprouts from Snow White Food Products Inc. are being recalled due to the presence of salmonella.

The recalled alfalfa sprouts are packaged in 3.5 ounce plastic clamshell containers. They have a UPC code of 0-46421-11236-6. The product from the Brooklyn-based company was distributed in New York state and potentially elsewhere in the New York City region. Officials are investigating how broadly the sprouts were distributed.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly or people with weakened immune systems.

Consumers who bought the containers are urged to return them or throw them away. Consumers with questions can contact the company at 718-230-5625
