The following additional health alert is from the FDA on March 18, 2015.

Vitamin Cottage Natural Food Markets Inc., a specialty retailer of organic and natural products, is expanding their recall of Natural Grocers brand Organic Garlic Powder to all lots as the product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
This recall was initiated after being notified of positive Salmonella findings in product from our supplier, which was repackaged by us.
The recalled product is packaged in clear plastic bags with Natural Grocers label notating Julian pack on dates and pricing per pound. The product was produced in size ranges of 0.25 pound to 0.30 pound. The lots being recalled are identifiable by Julian packed on date and include:

The following health alert is from the FDA on March 17, 2015 and in Canada at CFIA on March 18, 2015.

Frontier Co-op is voluntarily recalling several of its products manufactured with organic garlic powder that were sold under its Frontier and Simply Organic brands, and one product sold under the Whole Foods Market brand due to potential Salmonella contamination.
The product in question was raw material received by Frontier, which tested positive for Salmonella during a test by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Given that Salmonella may be present, Frontier is immediately initiating this recall.
Recalled products were sold in all 50 states and in some parts of Canada to distributors, retailers and consumers. Below the release is a list of products containing the organic garlic powder. List and images of the affected products can be viewed at the following link: www.frontiercoop.com/recall. (ed. note: not all of the products are certified as kosher).
On foil bulk packages, the four-digit lot code will be found on the front label directly above the UPC code. On bottled items, the four-digit lot code can be found on the bottom of the bottle. On seasoning mixes, the four-digit lot code is embossed on the right side of the packet.
Consumers should not consume these products and should either throw away any remaining products or return to the point of purchase for a refund.
Please contact Frontier Co-op with any questions or to inquire about replacement or reimbursement at 1- 800-669-3275 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central time.
