An outbreak of salmonella bacteria has resulted in the recall of sprouts
It is being reported that the Oregon public health officials and the U.S. Department of Agriculture have announced a sprout recall due to a huge outbreak of salmonella poisoning.
The sprouts in question are produced by Sprouter’s Northwest and are responsible for up to 13 cases of salmonellosis.
Grocery stores, restaurants and other eateries in Oregon and Washington received shipments of the tainted sprouts that are being recalled.
