The Los Angeles Salad Company in conjunction with the FDA is recalling the company’s “Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots” with a Sell By date code up to August 16, 2007. The named product has been recalled because the carrots have been found to be contaminated with the bacteria Shigella.
The baby carrots were sold under two labels: the first is “Los Angeles Salad Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots”, distributed by Kroger Co. King Sooper, in Colorado, Kroger Co. Ralphs in California, and Publix in Florida and Georgia. The second label is “Trader Joe’s Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots”, distributed by Trader Joe’s in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. The Trader Joe’s carrots were distributed in plastic translucent bags with a Sell By Date of up to August 8, 2007.
There have been four reported incidences of food poisoning due to Shigella in Canada during August 4 through the 6. The recall was initiated when consumers fell ill after eating this product.
