Carob Powder Recalled

On July 22, 2014, Earth Circle Organics issued a recall of Organic Carob Powder due to the risk of potential contamination with Salmonella.

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 Earth Circle Organics Organic Carob Powder products were sold to distributors and retail outlets in North America and can be identified by the following information:
