Salmonella Concerns Prompt Recall of Johnathan’s Sprouts Products

Johnathan’s Sprouts on Wednesday announced a voluntary recall of conventional alfalfa sprout products due to concerns of salmonella contamination.

According to the United States Food and Drug Administration,a routine test by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Microbiological Data Program revealed possible salmonella contamination in some Johnathan’s Sprouts’ alfalfa sprouts. The recall affects conventional alfalfa sprout products with a sell-by date of April 23.

The recalled products were distributed nationwide, according to company press release. The release stated that none of the Johnathan’s Sprouts’ organic alfalfa sprouts or any of its other organic products are included in the recall.

“We just celebrated our 35th anniversary in business and we’ve never had a problem like this,” said Johnathan’s Sprouts owner and president Bob Sanderson. “We test all of our product before we ship,using the FDA recommended tests. As a precaution we will not be using that seed lot again until we know more. We have notified all of our customers about the recall.”
