Sprouts Farmers Market Inc. (SFM) on Friday issued a recall of store-branded organic black peppercorns, saying the product could potentially be contaminated with salmonella.
The grocery chain said the product was being recalled from all stores. No illnesses have been reported.
Sprouts said the recall was enacted after a sample taken during routine testing by the Food and Drug Administration revealed the presence of salmonella in one lot of the product.
The product is sold in a 2.12-ounce, clear glass jar and with an expiration date of October 2016, Sprouts said. Each container is identified with a label showing the Sprouts company logo and the description “Organic Black Peppercorns.”
As a precaution, Sprouts is also recalling Frontier-branded organic whole black peppercorns sold in a 16-ounce container and Simply Organic-branded whole black peppercorns sold in a 2.65-ounce jar.
