WASHINGTON — Salmonella found in raw alfalfa sprouts appears to have sickened 22 people in 10 states, including one infant in Oregon, prompting a nationwide recall of the product.
Caldwell Fresh Foods of Maywood, Calif., announced the recall Friday. According to the Oregon Department of Human Services, which also announced the recall Friday, Caldwell’s product was sold in 18 states in the West, Midwest and South.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 11 people were sickened in California, two were sickened in Nevada and two were sickened in Wisconsin. Arizona, Oregon, Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico and Colorado each had one person sickened. Six people were hospitalized.
A representative for Caldwell did not return a call Friday and a release issued by the company did not list the states to which the company sold the sprouts. The company did report the sprouts were sold at restaurants, delicatessens and retailers nationwide, including many in California. Those California stores include Trader Joe’s, Wal-Mart, Kings
Super Markets, Numero Uno, Cardenas Markets, Gonzales Northgate Markets, Jons Markets and Canton Foods.
