Thai Peppers Recalled for Salmonella Risk

A California company is recalling 43 boxes of its Thai peppers because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Fruit Treasure of Chula Vista, CA issued a voluntary recall of its Jammin Peppers this week after Salmonella was detected in samples collected from some boxes of the product.

The peppers subject to recall were distributed to retailers in California between April 7 and April 10, 2013 in a 25 lb white wax box bearing the label “JAMMIN PEPPERS.”

A total of 43 boxes are affected by this recall.

Production of the company’s Thai peppers has been suspended while the company and FDA conduct an investigation into the source of the problem.

No illnesses have been linked to the consumption of these peppers to date. However, due to the time involved in tracing back illnesses to their source, it is impossible to say whether anyone has fallen ill from eating this product.

Consumers who have purchased the 25 lb boxes of recalled peppers should return them to their point of purchase for a full refund.
