More Carob Powder Products Recalled

On September 22, 2014, Glaser Organic Farms issued a recall of Raw Carob Powder and Carob Fudgy Brownie because they have the potential to be contaminated 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.

The recalled carob powder products distributed from May 7, 2014 thru July 23, 2014, and can be identified by the following:

  • Raw Carob Powder (8 ounces), Lot # 0507081456 I, UPC Code 83291005567
  • Carob Fudgy Brownie (5.5 ounces), Lot # 0207211406 I, UPC Code 832910002061
