Herring Produce of Lake Park, Georgia is voluntarily recalling production lot number 0801206 of its whole Anaheim Peppers over the peppers’ potential to be contaminated with the dangerous, sometimes deadly, Salmonella pathogen, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just announced. The agency said it is not linking this isolated positive sample to any current or ongoing <"https://www.yourlawyer.com/topics/overview/salmonella">Salmonella outbreaks.

The whole Anaheim Peppers were shipped June 9-19, 2009 to retail outlets in New York state, Ohio, and Massachusetts. The Anaheim Peppers being recalled were shipped in half-bushel boxes with production lot number 0801206 located on a red sticker on the box. Boxes are white, wax cardboard Herring Produce boxes and contain a printed picture of yellow squash and green zucchini.

All Herring Produce customers have been notified of the potential Salmonella contamination and affected produce has been recalled.

The recall follows routine sampling by the New York State Department of Agriculture on behalf of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in which the agency discovered a positive sample in the affected production lot. Herring Produce has ceased production and shipments from this production area.

Anaheim peppers are a raw agricultural product that must be washed before consumption. Although these peppers are typically cooked, they can be eaten raw. Of note, heating to a high enough temperature would kill Salmonella bacteria.

If customers have purchased Anaheim Peppers they are advised to contact their retailer to determine if the peppers purchased were affected by the recall. Consumers who have questions about this recall may contact Gulf Stream Produce at 1-919-217-2870 or Herring Produce at 1-229-559-0101.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the Herring Produce Anaheim Pepper products, to date.

Salmonella is an organism which may cause serious and sometimes fatal infections particularly in young children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and/or abdominal pain. Long-term complications can include arterial infections (i.e. infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and severe arthritis.
