What’s the problem?
April 25, 2012 – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release today warning the public that Alfa Sprouts Inc. is currently recalling the following products because they may be tainted with listeria:

To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall. Anyone concerned about a listeria food poisoning illness should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
