Trader Joe's, Walmart Sprouts Recalled For Salmonella

Sprouts sold at Trader Joe’s, Walmart, Kings Super Market, Numero Uno Stores, Cárdenas Markets, Gonzalez Northgate Markets, Wal-Mart stores, Jons Markets, and Canton Foods have been recalled after an outbreak of salmonella sickened more than 20 people in 10 states.

There have been no deaths but 4 people have been hospitalized.

The recalled alfalfa sprouts are labeled and packaged as follows:

  • Caldwell Fresh Foods – 4-ounce plastic cups and one pound plastic bags, and 2-pound and 5 pound plastic bags in cardboard boxes with sticker affixed with the printed words Caldwell Fresh Foods.
  • Nature’s Choice – 4-ounce plastic cups

If you’ve purchased these sprouts, return them to where you bought them or simply discard them. If you experience the symptoms of salmonella after consuming sprouts, seek medical attention.
