Thousands of cases of ground pepper sold in the U.S. that may be contaminated by salmonella are being recalled by its manufacturer, CBS Detroit reported on June 9.
Reports said Olde Thompson issued a recall to 5,000 cases of Kirkland Signature Coarse Ground Malabar Pepper with an expiration date of March 2017. The FDA discovered the contamination in the products while conducting routine tests. The affected pepper containers were sold in the U.S. from April to June. Consumers who bought the recalled products are advised to immediately dispose of it, as salmonella poisoning can cause severe illness or death.
