Our friend "Sal Monella" really gets around. The UK Food Standards Agency is alerting consumers to a recall of alfalfa seeds announced by Waitrose Ltd.
The company is recalling two batches of its own brand of alfalfa seeds, due to possible contamination with Salmonella. The seeds are packaged in 150 gram packs and carry "best before" dates of 26/03/08 and 05/04/08.
Consumers should not eat these seeds or used them to produce alfalfa sprouts. The process of sprouting encourages Salmonella growth and increases the risk of food borne illness.
