Which Arugula Products are Affected by the Recall?

According to FDA Recall Alert, the recall affects 1 lot of 4-ounce containers of Green Life Farms Baby Arugula [1] published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The recalled arugula comes in a clear plastic package marked with the lot code# LW15124 stamped on the top and a sell-by date of 6/15/24.

Symptoms of Salmonella may include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps,” FDA said. “Illness usually occurs within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food and usually lasts four to seven days. Children younger than five, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have severe infections – FDA stated

Where Was the Recalled Arugula Sold?

Arugula products affected by this recall were sold at select Publix grocery stores from 5/31/24, the FDA said. To date, no salmonella infections have been reported in connection with this recall.

Why was the Arugula Recall Initiated?

Green Life Farms initiated this recall after routine testing revealed the presence of salmonella in a single harvest of Baby Arugula. The company took immediate corrective action and additional harvests remain unaffected, according to the FDA.

FDA Recommendation
