The potential presence of salmonella in lots of parsley has led to the recall of a number of spices from Sauer Brands Inc.’s Spice Hunter products, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The FDA said a supplier notified Sauer Brands of possible salmonella in specific lots of organic parsley that it provided to the company. Sauer Brands said it is recalling other products produced on the same two days of production as the parsley out of an abundance of caution.
The company has not received any reports of illness.
The affected Spice Hunter products were distributed in a number of states, including Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Maryland and New Jersey, and come in clear glass jars with lots codes 20217C, 20220C, 20269C and 20270C.
Affected products include organic parsley, gourmet sesame seeds, pumpkin pie spice, California garlic, Mexican seasoning, black pepper, paprika, Chinese ginger, roasted garlic, cilantro, freeze-dried chives and cayenne red pepper.

Customers who have purchased affected products should return them to their place of purchase for a full refund.
B&G Foods is recalling a limited number of boxes of Back to Nature Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers because the box may actually contain pouches of peanut butter cookies.
The company discovered the issue after it received consumer complaints. Though the box was for wheat crackers, the foil packages on the inside did correctly label the product inside as peanut butter cookies.
The recall only affects 6-ounce boxes with a UPC of 8-19898-01015-8 and best by date of April 25, 2021. No allergic reactions have been reported.
Customers who have purchased the product can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The FDA also announced that Sunshine Mills Inc. is expanding a recall of pet food products over levels of aflatoxin, a naturally occurring mold by-product that can be harmful to pets if consumed in significant qualities. The FDA determined in September that corn-based pet food products produced between April 3 and April 5 may contain corn from a single load of corn with elevated levels of aflatoxin.
Sunshine Mills said it is expanding the recall as a precautionary measure. Pets with aflatoxin toxicity may show symptoms including sluggishness or lethargy with a reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, and diarrhea.
Affected products include Champ’s mini chunk dog food beef and chicken flavor, Field Trial’s complete nutrition premium dog food, Good Dog’s hi-energy formula, Hunter’s Special hi-energy formula and maintenance formula, Old Glory’s hearty beef and chicken flavor and Paws Happy Life’s nutritionally complete dog food.

Consumers should return unused portions to the place of purchase for a full refund.
