Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods is voluntarily recalling 3 lots of Organic Whole Grain Amaranth (24 oz. and 25 lb), due to the potential presence of Salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and produce more severe illnesses.

This recall was initiated when the company received a notification from its supplier that specific lots of Organic Amaranth may be contaminated with Salmonella. The company has received no reports of illness or injury to date.

The recalled product was distributed through retailers and distributors nationwide. Consumers who are in possession of this affected product should not consume it and should return it to the place of purchase for credit or refund or throw it away.

Consumer safety is our top priority, and Bob’s Red Mill has issued this recall voluntarily out of an abundance of caution. We remain committed as always to providing our customers with safe and healthy products.
