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.

From NBC11:

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.
