Winn-Dixie Recalls LEASA Sprouts Due to Salmonella Risk

Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., today announced an immediate Class I voluntary recall of all LEASA Living Alfalfa Sprouts sold in the 6 oz. package with a UPC code of 7546555912. According to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), the product is potentially contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

LEASA Broccoli Sprouts 7546555636 4 oz

LEASA Gourmet Sprouts 7546555633 6 oz

LEASA Spicy Sprouts 7546555635 6 oz

LEASA Onion Sprouts 7546555634 6 oz

All LEASA sprouts being recalled were sold between Jan. 7, 2012, and Jan. 18, 2012, and have expirations dates between Feb. 1, 2012, and March 15, 2012.

Winn-Dixie has received no reports of illness associated with LEASA branded sprouts consumption.

I do not see my warning label on the box:
