Mountain Rose Herbs Recalls Fennel Seed Whole For Salmonella Presence


Mountain Rose Herbs has recalled one lot of Fennel Seed Whole after the company found salmonella in part of its inventory.

The Eugene, Oregon-based company has recalled all sizes ranging from 4 oz. to 50 lbs. of its Fennel Seed Whole, Lot #25031, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

The product was sold online, by mail order, at the company's Eugene, Oregon retail shop and went to vitamin and health food stores in Florida, California, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. A Canadian consignee also received the product. Product has been sold and distributed between April 2019 and up to July 18, 2019.

No illnesses have been reported to date. The company has asked customers to return the fennel seed to the place of purchase for a full refund.
