On seasoning mixes, the code is on the right side of the packet. If you are in possession of any products affected by this recall, do not consume them and either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Natural Grocers Garlic Powder Recall
Two days after the Frontier Co-op recall was issued, another nationwide recall was announced for organic garlic powder distributed by Vitamin Cottage Natural Food Markets Inc., a Lakewood, CO-based natural grocery chain.

Eating foods that contain Salmonella can cause severe, potentially life-threatening infections in children, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems. In otherwise healthy people, Salmonella infection can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare cases, the bacteria can get into the bloodstream and cause more serious problems such as arterial infections, endocarditic and arthritis.
