Thomas Produce Company of Boca Raton, FL is recalled 174 bulk-packed containers of cucumbers that may be contaminated with Salmonella. But where were they sold?
Recall information from the company does not specify which stores sold the recalled cucumbers, only that they were distributed in Florida and Georgia.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea that can be bloody, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
The recalled cucumbers were sold in 166 cardboard bushel boxes with one of the following lot numbers ink-jet printed on the side: 1554311JDNK, 1554311HDNK, and 15143115DNK. They were also distributed in bulk cardboard bins (4 ft x 4 ft) tagged with codes 15NKJD-1554311-D, 15NKHD-1554311-D, and 15NK5D-1514311-D.
The recall notice was issued after a positive result for Salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The company has ceased production and distribution of the affected lots during the investigation.
