A California-based company is recalling 1,800 jars of its crushed red pepper because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella. Paramount, CA-based S & P Company, Limited issued a voluntary recall of its Su-nun brand Crush Roasted Thai Red Pepper Friday after routine testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration revealed the presence of Salmonella in a sample of the product. Product subject to this recall was distributed between July and October, 2012 to grocery stores in the Los Angeles area – including Bell and Long Beach – as well as Rockford, Illinois; Phoenix, Arizona; Omaha, Nebraska and Brooklyn, New York. The pepper is sold in a clear plastic 10.58 oz. jar with a red plastic screw-on lid. Jars bear a red and yellow label that reads “Su-nun Brand Red Pepper ‘Super Hot.’” There is a clear plastic heat shrink on the lid of the jar, which is marked with bar code 659613000770. No illnesses have been linked to the recalled product to date. Customers who purchased the recalled product are urged to return it to its place of purchase for a full refund.
