An undisclosed amount of carrots that may be contaminated with bacteria could cause diarrhea, nausea, fever and vomiting.I don't know about you, but I thought we lived in a First World Country. You know, where there are laws and good business practices and food safety controls built into the system. Apparently not so much anymore.
The Los Angeles Salad Co. said it was voluntarily recalling its “Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots” because the carrots might be contaminated with the bacteria called shigella.
The product was sold under two labels. One is “Los Angeles Salad Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots” with a sell-by date up to and including Aug. 16, 2007, sold in 7-ounce and 8-ounce bags and distributed in California, Colorado, Florida and Georgia.
The other is “Trader Joe’s Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots” with a sell-by date up to and including Aug. 8, 2007, sold in 7-ounce bags and distributed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington.
Consumers with questions can call the company at 1-626-322-9017.
