April 22, 2011: Cucumber Recall

A recall of whole cucumbers has been made by L&M Companies, Inc., located in Raleigh, North Carolina.  This is due to their being potentially contaminated with Salmonella.

According to the FDA, approximately 1600 cartons (one lot) of the product were distributed to wholesalers in New York (200 cartons), Florida (591 cartons), Illinois (139 cartons), Indiana (30 cartons) and Tennessee (15 cartons), and one retailer with distribution centers in Mississippi (420 cartons), Nebraska (92 cartons), Texas (2 cartons) and Wyoming (101 cartons) between March 30th and April 7th.

The recalled bulk cartons are marked Nature’s Delight and contain the Lot # PL-RID-002990 on the side of the carton.

 Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning may include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain. Symptoms usually appear 12-72 hours after the ingestion of contaminated food, and the illness usually lasts 4-7 days.
