Fennel Seed Lawsuit

July 24, 2019 – Our lawyers are investigating potential lawsuits for people who developed a confirmable salmonella infection (salmonellosis) after consuming whole fennel seed produced by Mountain Rose Herbs. A nationwide recall for this product was announced by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on July 22, 2019.

The recall affects all sizes (4 oz. to 50 lbs.) of Mountain Rose Herbs Fennel Seed Whole, Lot #25031, FDA said. Recalled products were sold directly to consumers online and at the company’s retail shop in Eugene, Oregon, as well as distributed to vitamin and health food stores in the following states: AZ, CA, CO, FL, IL, MA, MI, MN, MT, NC, NE, NM, NY, OH, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WA, WV.

What’s the problem?

The recalled fennel seed was sold in a clear plastic or poly-woven bag marked with lot #25031, which is located on the display panel on the lower left of the label, FDA said. Product was sold from April 2019 to July 18, 2019.

Mountain Rose Herbs initiated the recall after tests revealed the presence of salmonella in a portion of its active inventory, according to the recall letter. Production of the fennel seed has been suspended while the investigation into the source of the contamination continues.

To date, no salmonella infections or other illnesses have been associated with the recall. If you purchased any of the recalled fennel seed, you should not use it, and either discard it immediately or return it to the point of purchase for a refund.

Can I File a Class Action?

Although Schmidt & Clark, LLP, is a nationally recognized class action firm, we have decided against this type of litigation when it comes to fennel seed injury cases. Our lawyers feel that if there is a successful resolution to these claims, individual suits, not class actions will be the best way to get maximum payouts to our clients. If you developed a salmonella infection after consuming fennel seeds, we know you’ve suffered emotionally and economically, and want to work with you personally to obtain the maximum compensation for the damages caused by your injuries.
