Tai Phat Wholesalers, LLC is recalling 4 types of packages of "Three Coins Dried Mushrooms" citing the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

The recalled dried mushrooms come in four different types & sizes, in slices and whole, in a sealed clear plastic package with a label.

They were distributed in specialty retail stores in various states. These include Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The recall was initiated after the potential for contamination was noted in a routine testing by Maryland Department of Health of items bought at a retail store. The testing revealed the presence of Salmonella in some packages of "Three Coins Dried Mushrooms".

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. The symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Infection with Salmonella could also result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.

However, the Capitol Heights, Maryland -based company has not received any reports of illnesses related to the recalled product to date.

Sales of the product has been suspended while MDH and the company continue their investigation as to find the source of the problem.

Consumers who have purchased the affected item are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
