These items contain cumin spice involved in a recall initiated by our supplier, Mincing Spice Co. Mincing has issued a recall for a specific lot of cumin they produced because a sample from that lot was tested by one of Mincing’s customers and was found to be potentially contaminated with Salmonella. A portion of the lot recalled by Mincing was supplied to Williams Foods, LLC. It is a precautionary action; to date, there have been no consumer complaints or reported cases of Salmonellosis.
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.
The potentially affected product consists of retail packages weighing 1 – 1.25 oz.
The “Best By” date information can be found on the top part of the back side of the package. The product is sold in select retail grocery stores located in Washington, DC and several other states, including Florida.
No other “Best By” dates are being recalled.
Consumers who have purchased the product with the above “Best By” dates are urged not to consume the product but to discard it or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Call Williams Foods customer service center at 1-800-847-5608 or by e-mail at [email protected] for more information. Our customer service desk will be staffed in person from 8am to 5pm CST Monday to Friday.
