Alfalfa Sprout Recall Expanded


A Nebraska company has expanded a recall of alfalfa sprouts after more than a dozen cases of salmonella were linked to the food. SunSprouts Enterprises on Friday doubled its recall that was first announced Thursday. Nebraska health officials say the 1,406 pounds of raw sprouts was distributed in 4-ounce and 2.5-pound packages to food service and grocery customers in the Midwest between late November and mid-December. The recalled sprouts have best-by dates between Dec. 10, 2022, and Jan. 7, 2023. People who have the sprouts are advised to dispose of them. Nebraska health officials said there have been 16 confirmed cases of people becoming ill. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noted 15 confirmed cases of people getting sick, including two who were hospitalized.
