Baby Carrots Recalled from TJ's, Ralph's
Just one more reason to start buying your carrots at your farmer's market: NBC11.com and the Los Angeles Times are reporting that The Los Angeles Salad Company is recalling two brands of pre-packaged baby carrots because they might be contaminated with a bacteria called shigella. The symptoms sound like a pants-load of fun: vomiting, diarrhea, bloody poops, etc. Although no cases of sickness have been reported yet in California, the carrots are being sold at SoCal Trader Joe's and Ralph's markets.
The "Los Angeles Salad" carrots are available in 7- and 8-ounce bags with a sell-by date of Aug. 16. The "Trader Joe's" carrots are in 7-ounce bags with a sell-by date of Aug. 8.
The company has put up a press release over at their website with more information about the recall: "Consumers who have purchased Los Angeles Salad Company’s 'Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots' are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund, Consumers with questions may contact Los Angeles Salad [at] 626-322-9017."
