Spokane Produce Recalls Salsa Products Containing Onions

Spokane Produce Inc. is recalling its salsa products containing onions on potential contamination by Salmonella spp.

On August 1, Thomson International, Inc. recalled all their varieties of onions, fearing cross-contamination from their potentially contaminated red onions. Consequently, Spokane's supplier who procured onions from Thomas International also called back their onions. This led to the latest recall by Spokane Produce.

The details of recalled products are as follows in the order of name, size and best by date: Saddlin' Up Salsa Hot, 15 oz, 8/16/2020; Saddlin' Up Salsa Medium, 15 oz, 9/30/2020; Saddlin' Up Salsa Medium, 15 oz, 8/5/2020; Saddlin' Up Salsa Mild, 15 oz, 8/11/2020; Salsa Verde, 15 oz, 8/26/2020; Salsa Verde, Gallon, 9/28/2020 and Salsa Verde, Gallon, 8/11/2020.

Salmonella infection is a bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract causing fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

There are no reports of illness so far, related to the recalled products.

In a similar instance, recently, Progressive Produce LLC had recalled some of their red and yellow onions, supplied by Thomson International, citing potential contamination with Salmonella.
