Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following health alert alert is from the FDA on January 3, 2011.

Sprouters Northwest, Inc. of Kent, WA, is recalling all of its clover and clover mix products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The recall was initiated January 1st by Sprouters Northwest after learning that a few cases of Salmonella might be linked to sprouts. Sprouters Northwest, Inc. concluded that this type of cautionary, voluntary action was the appropriate and responsible reaction regardless of the limited information available. The recalled clover products were distributed in WA, OR, ID, and AL in retail chains and through wholesale distribution. The withdrawal includes 4oz. (UPC 8 15098 00201 6) and 5oz. (UPC 0 33383 70235 3) containers of Clover sprouts, 1lb. bags of Clover (UPC 0 79566 12351 5), and 2 lb trays of Clover (UPC 0 79566 12362 1). Also included are Clover Onion sprouts in 4oz.

Production of these products has been suspended while FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the source of the problem. Consumers who have purchased these clover based products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 253-872-0577 Mon-Fri 7AM -11AM.
