Idaho Producer Recalls Sprouts Under Pressure

Posted By on Sat, Jul 2, 2011 at 12:02 PM

Nearly a full week after the Food and Drug Administration warned of a possible link between an outbreak of salmonella poisoning and sprouts from an Idaho producer, Evergreen Produce of Moyie Springs, in Idaho's panhandle, issed a formal recall of its alfalfa and spicy sprouts. Evergreen had initially refused a recall, but the company said late Friday it was relenting to agency pressure.

At least 21 cases of salmonella have been reported in Idaho, Montana, Washington, North Dakota and New Jersey. Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in people with weakened immune systems.
