RECALL NOTICE – march 16, 2015
Frontier Co-op is voluntarily recalling several of its products manufactured with organic garlic powder that were sold under its Frontier brand due to potential Salmonella contamination. To date, no illnesses have been associated with these products.
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.
Frontier Co-op is immediately initiating added precautions to the safety of the supply chain and instituting additional product testing, beyond FDA guidelines, to mitigate any future occurrence.
Consumption of products containing Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditic and arthritis.
Consumers should not consume these products and should either throw away any remaining products or return to the point of purchase for a refund.
