March 5, 2010 – Concord Foods Inc., is voluntarily recalling certain production codes of Concord Foods Vegetable Dip Seasoning Mix that is generally sold in the produce department of supermarkets because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
The product subject to this recall that was distributed nationwide in the United States under the Concord Foods brand in foil pouches and sold in the produce section of the supermarket is:
- Concord Foods Vegetable Dip Seasoning – Homestyle, Net weight 1.5 oz (43 g) (Best By: 07/27/12) (UPC Code: 041409002066) (Note: The best by date code is embossed on the left edge of the back panel).
Concord Foods was notified by its supplier that an ingredient used in these products and produced by Basic Food Flavors Inc., of Las Vegas, NV, is the subject of a voluntary recall due to potential Salmonella contamination.
Salmonella is an organism which 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 (which may be bloody), 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 (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
To date no known illnesses have been associated with this product and no other types, varieties or different date codes have been affected by this recall. However, since customer safety is our top priority, Concord Foods has voluntarily recalled this product. Concord Foods is working with the FDA to conduct this voluntary recall.
Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
