California-based food manufacturer Sunfood is recalling its Organic Sacha Inchi Powder after learning that the recalled products might be contaminated with Staphylococcus enterotoxin, according to a report by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on February 11.
The company learned about the possible contamination after a routine test. The affected products were packed in 8oz poly bags, with a lot number of 141027, a UPC Code of 803813-28444 1, and an expiration date of 9/30/2016. Customers are asked not to use the product and to return it for a full refund.
Staphylococcus enterotoxin may cause staphylococcal food poisoning, a medical emergency associated with serious complications such as blood pressure changes, and dehydration caused by diarrhea and vomiting.
Every year, 1 in 6 Americans suffer from food-borne diseases, which accounts for thousands of hospitalizations and fatalities in the country.
