What’s the problem?

March 18, 2011 – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) today announced that WorldVariety Produce, Inc. of Los Angeles, CA is now recalling 300 cases of Serrano peppers that were distributed to Walmart stores in Wisconsin, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming.

The products in question have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella bacteria and were sold from bulk displays between the dates of March 1, 2011 through March 18, 2011. Consumers who have purchased the affected Serrano peppers are asked to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Salmonella Food Poisoning Symptoms

It takes an extremely small dose of salmonella to cause a serious infection, and the incubation period – the time between ingestion of the bacteria and the onset of symptoms – ranges anywhere from six hours to several days. Signs and symptoms of salmonella food poisoning include (but are not limited to) :

  • diarrhea
  • abdominal cramps
  • fever
  • nausea
  • vomiting

Other Side Effects of Serrano Peppers

Even non-contaminated serrano peppers may trigger symptoms including skin rash, itchiness in the mouth, and coughing if you inhale the spice. Additionally, studies have cautioned against work-related allergic respiratory disease and asthma in spice mill workers due to hot pepper exposure.

Overeating serrano pepper can also cause asthma attacks. Research has found that anyone prone to asthma or asthma-like symptoms should avoid capsaicin.

Asthma-prone individuals may also experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and reflux after eating serrano peppers. Therefore, if you cannot eat spicy food or are sensitive to capsaicin, be careful when eating serrano peppers, or avoid them altogether.
