On July 27th, McCormick announced a voluntary recall for four of their products due to a Salmonella risk. According to the company’s press release, “The potential risk was brought to McCormick’s attention by FDA during routine testing… McCormick has alerted customers and grocery outlets to remove the product with the affected date codes from store shelves and distribution centers immediately.”

What exactly is Salmonella? It’s an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

At this time, no illnesses have been reported in connection to these products. Even so, it’s important to dispose of the seasonings if you have them in your home. The press release from McCormick states, “Consumers do not need to return the product to the store where it was purchased. Instead, consumers are urged to dispose of the recalled product and its container.”
