Select Great Value Organic Black Chia Seeds Under Voluntary Recall for Possible Presence of Salmonella

Natural Sourcing International is initiating a voluntary recall of one lot of Great Value Organic Black Chia Seeds 32 oz. due to the potential presence of Salmonella that may be in some of the finished products. Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. While no adverse events associated with the products have been reported to date, products are being recalled out of an abundance of caution and because consumer safety is the company’s highest priority.


Consumers are directed to throw away products subject to the recall.

Recall of French’s Original Crispy Fried Onions Due to Potential Staphylococcus Aureus Contamination

McCormick & Company, Inc. of Hunt Valley, MD, is recalling French’s Original Crispy Fried Onions in various sizes because of the potential growth of Staphylococcus aureus. The recalled products were distributed in Arizona and Illinois.


Consumers should not use this product. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to their place of purchase.


Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium that usually causes rapid food poisoning symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, retching, abdominal cramping, and prostration. In more severe cases, headache, muscle cramping and transient changes in blood pressure and pulse may occur. Recovery generally takes two days, and everyone is susceptible. While it is rare, some people have died from such infections, particularly the elderly, infants, and those who were severely debilitated.
