In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The product is sold in plastic containers, approximately 4 inches cube.

The products containing alfalfa sprouts were distributed in New York, New England, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware.

They are sold at the following stores:

A&P, Grand Union, Stop & Shop, Shaws, Hannaford, Donnelans, Foodmaster, Truccis, Roche Brothers.

Jonathan’s organic alfalfa sprouts or any of Jonathan’s organic products are not part of this recall.
