A North Carolina produce company has issued a nationwide recall last Friday on their Nature's Delight cucumbers in fear of salmonella contamination.
U.S. Food & Drug Administration inspectors found salmonella on a randomly selected sample of cucumbers from L&M Companies, Inc. in a cooler at Four Seasons Produce of Central Florida.
The company is ONLY recalling those Nature's Delight packages marked Lot # PL-RID-002990 on the side of the carton.
Despite only having shipped the affected packages to New York, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Nebraska, Texas and Wyoming, the company explained the nationwide recall in a statement, saying:
"L&M Companies is issuing a nationwide recall out of an abundance of caution because the company recognizes the possibility that wholesale customers could have redistributed the product in states beyond those listed above."
Word to the wise, get new cucumbers!
