No adverse events associated with the seeds have been reported, but the recall was made as a precaution, the FDA said.

Customers can identify the recalled seeds by the main label on the pouch and the lot number printed on the bottom of the back panel of the packaging.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Salmonella can also enter a person’s bloodstream and cause illnesses like arterial infectios, endocarditis and arthritis.

Customers should throw away the seeds and Natural Sourcing International will provide a replacement product with proof of purchase.
