If you have any of these products in your home, throw them away immediately – BGR

  • The FDA and CDC have extended the recall to products containing onions that may be contaminated with the Salmonella bacterium.
  • The products contain salsas and dips that include onions that were part of a previous memory.
  • If you have any of the products in your home, you are advised to return them to the store for a refund and not to consume them.

It was only about a week ago that the FDA and CDC announced a major recall of onions sold under various markets in the United States. Now, that memory expands to include some products that include onions that may have been previously contaminated with Salmonella.

In a new FDA memo bulletin, the agency explains that the potentially contaminated onions were used to make a variety of dips and salsa in retail chains nationwide. Now these products are being recalled as well. The products include dips from Spokane Produce and store-produced deli items from Kroger.

The recently recalled products are listed on two separate FDA recall bulletins, and include products covered under the names Murray’s, and Jarslberg, as well as products produced by the deli in Kroger stores. It includes cheese spreads of various flavors, dips, and salsas. The salsa products included in the memory produced by Spokane Produce are listed under the name Saddlin ‘Up.

These new memories are directly linked to the previous memory of onions sold under a variety of brands. The products used onions from Thomson International, Inc., which were distributed under names including Onions 52, which used Spokane Produce in its various salsas.

The salsa products were sold in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. Kroger products were sold in Kroger stores in West Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Missouri. All in all, it is a fairly broad memory, and there is a good chance that many consumers have these products in their homes.

It is important to note that no one has been reported sick yet, that it is unclear if one has actually fallen ill due to the potentially contaminated vegetables, but the FDA and the company are not taking any chances.

The FDA bulletin states:

Out of an overabundance of caution, these items have been removed from store shelves and the company has recalled a customer notification system that alerts customers who may have purchased repurchased products via messages and register call for receipt tapes.

Salmonella can be a nasty infection, and it is especially serious in children, the elderly, and those with pre-existing medical conditions. Healthy people who fall ill with the bacterial infection will experience fever, nausea, vomiting, cramps, and even bloody diarrhea, so you know for sure that there was something wrong when you came down with a Salmonella infection.

If you have any of these products in your home, do not eat them, even if you or others have eaten them and have not fallen ill. You are advised to return the products to the store where you purchased them for a full refund or a replacement.
