August 31, 2009: Red Pepper Spice Being Recalled in Texas

The Texas Coffee Co., Beaumont, TX, is currently recalling its red pepper spice after getting word from its supplier of the potential for it being contaminated with Salmonella.

The products are 3 and 8 ounce packages of Texjoy red pepper with lot numbers: A29A07A2012, A28A07A2012 and A30A07A2012.  The spice was sold to stores in southeastern Texas and Louisiana.

Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. Salmonella infections can be life-threatening, especially to those with weak immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours. Additional symptoms may include chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days.
