About this Deal
McCormick & Company has recalled three seasonings in 32 states for possible salmonella contamination.
Walmart, Target and Kroger stores are among the retailers that sold affected products.
July has been a busy month for recalls with sunscreen, chicken and carrots among the biggest recalls.
McCormick & Company Inc. is voluntarily recalling three of its seasonings due to possible salmonella contamination.
According to the recall notice posted on the Food and Drug Administration website Tuesday, the three seasonings are McCormick Perfect Pinch Italian Seasoning, McCormick Culinary Italian Seasoning and Frank's RedHot Buffalo Ranch Seasoning.
The company, which is based in Hunt Valley, Maryland, said no illnesses have been linked to the recall to date.
Most people who get ill from salmonella develop diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps six hours to six days after being exposed to the bacteria, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.
A full list of stores that sold the affected products was not included with the recall, but select Walmart, Target and Kroger stores sold the seasonings, according to the retailers' recall webpages.
"McCormick has alerted customers and grocery outlets to remove the product with the affected date codes from store shelves and distribution centers immediately, and to destroy this product in a manner that would prevent any further consumption," the company said.
The affected products were shipped to 32 states, Bermuda and Canada between June 20 and July 21, the company said.
States that received the products are Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.
McCormick said consumers "do not need to return the product to the store where it was purchased" and is urging them to "dispose of the recalled product and its container."
