McCormick & Company, Inc. recalls Italian Seasoning and Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Ranch Seasoning due to Salmonella contamination
McCormick & Company, Inc. of Hunt Valley, Maryland, is voluntarily recalling McCormick Perfect Pinch Italian Seasoning, McCormick Culinary Italian Seasoning and Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Ranch Seasoning because the products may be contaminated with Salmonella, according to a recall notice from the Defense Commissary Agency’s food safety office sent July 28.
Salmonella can be potentially life-threatening, especially to infants, older people, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems. It can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. Salmonella’s most common symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. Salmonella’s symptoms usually develop between eight to 72 hours after consumption of the contaminated food and last about four to seven days.
The Defense Commissary Agency has publicized this recall to all its stores, said Richard Stith, Chief, Public Health Division, DeCA headquarters at Fort Lee, Virginia. Whenever a commissary has recalled or withdrawn products in its inventory, they are immediately removed from store shelves.
