A California-based company is recalling approximately 5,600 cases of carrot chips because they may be contaminated with Salmonella. San Joaquin Valley-based Bolthouse Farms issued a voluntary recall of carrot chips produced on two consecutive days because samples of the product tested positive for Salmonella. The samples were collected on October 22 by a North Carolina health official, according to the recall announcement. The company received news of the positive Salmonella test October 31 and issued the recall the following day. The carrot chips, sold under the Bolthouse Farms brand, were sold to retail stores in the United States and Canada in 16 oz. bags, and bear one of the following two sets of markings: BEST IF USED BY NOV 12 2012 04 T XXXX BF 212 J11 UPC 71464 17209 BEST IF USED BY NOV 13 2012 04T XXXX BF 212 J 12 UPC 71464 17209 Consumers who have purchased the affected product are urged not to eat it and to return it to its point of purchase for a full refund.
