Cucumbers are being recalled nationwide because they could be contaminated with Salmonella, according to news reports.
Nearly 1,590 bulk cartons of cucumbers are being recalled by L&M Companies, out of Raleigh, N.C., according to news reports.
The recalled produce includes Nature’s Delight and Lot No. PL-RID-002990.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, inspectors found Salmonella on randomly selected samples of cucumbers at a cooler of of Central Florida in mid-April.
As a Beaufort car accident lawyer, I’m saddened to hear about this food recall linked to Salmonella. I urge consumers with this product to throw it out or return it to stores for a full refund. Salmonella is a potentially fatal foodborne illness that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems. If you believe you were sickened by foodborne bacteria, contact a doctor immediately.
While we don’t handle this type of recall we feel that it’s important to educate the community that there has been a recall to help protect your safety. If you have been injured in a recall like this you might wish to contact a Beaufort Personal Injury Lawyer who can help.
