(Before It's News)

Organic micro greens grown by a Colorado company and distributed to Whole Foods Markets locations in Kansas and Colorado are under recall after a random government test of the finished product showed Salmonella contamination.

Osage Gardens Inc. of New Castle, CO, packaged the recalled micro greens in 2-ounce clear, plastic clamshell containers with labels on the bottom, according to the recall notice on the Food and Drug Administration website.

Consumers can identify the recalled micro greens by the following label information:

  • UPC Code 709376615008; and
  • Codes from 266 to 279.

“The recall was a result of a routine sampling by the FDA which revealed that the finished products contained the bacteria. Osage Gardens Inc. has ceased the production and distribution of the product as FDA and Osage Gardens Inc. continue their investigation as to what caused the problem,” the recall states.

Consumers who have purchased Osage Gardens Organic 2-ounce micro greens are urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Osage Gardens Inc. at 970-876-0668.

No illnesses had been reported in relation to the recalled micro greens as of the posting of the recall notice Saturday.

Anyone who has eaten any of the recalled micro greens and begone ill is urged to seek medical attention and alert their doctors to the potential exposure to Salmonella.

Salmonella bacteria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea that may be bloody, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.
