FDA Issues Recall For Cucumbers Shipped To South Carolina


The FDA just sent out an emergency alert for a salmonella contamination in a widespread national shipment of cucumbers.

Fresh Start Produce Sales Inc. said they shipped the recalled cucumbers to retail distribution centers, wholesalers and food service distributors in South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

According to the FDA, “anyone with the recalled product should not consume it and should destroy and discard it or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers should check with their retailer or place of purchase to determine whether the recalled cucumbers were sold where they shop.”

Salmonella can occasionally be old in the young, the old, and those with weakened immune systems. Even healthy people can get a fever, diarrhea, vomiting, and nausea from a salmonella infection.
