Freeland Foods recalls spicy seed mix due to Salmonella risk

Posted on January 28, 2015 11:47 am under Product Liability

California-based food manufacturer Freeland Foods issued a precautionary consumer-level recall of the Go Raw Organic Spicy Seed Mix due to fears of Salmonella contamination, according to a press release published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on January 23.

A random testing conducted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency found that the Go Raw Brand Organic Spicy Seed Mix with UPC number 8 59888 00040 and lot number “Enjoy before May 12, 2015 R2” might be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious adverse effects, especially among children and frail adults.

The products were sold across the country by Ecomax in 1 lb re-sealable plastic bags. No other Go Raw Brand Organic Spicy Seed Mix with different UPC and lot numbers have been affected by the recall.
