Protein Drink Mix Recalled Due to Salmonella Risk
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Salmonella infection can produce fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. 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.
Recalled Oriya Organics Superfood Protein Medley was sold in retail stores in Texas and Louisiana, and directly to customers through the internet in Texas, Arkansas, Illinois, Florida, New York, Louisiana, and Virginia.
It can be identified by UPC Code:85370100401, Lot# A14314, and an expiration date of 05/23/2015.
No other Oriya Organics products are affected by this recall and no illnesses associated with this product have been reported to date. However, a number of other products containing Organic Sprouted Chia Seed Powder sold by various manufacturers and retailers have also recently been recalled due to the risk of Salmonella contamination (See Related Warnings).
