Attention all cucumber lovers! You may just want to double check your refrigerators. Raleigh-based L&M Companies, Inc. has issued a recall for the popular vegetable fearing salmonella contamination, reports CNN.
The nationwide recall was announced this past weekend after U.S. Food & Drug Administration inspectors found salmonella on a randomly selected sample of cucumbers in a cooler at Four Seasons Produce in Central Florida.
The recalled cartons are marked Nature’s Delight and contain the Lot # PL-RID-002990 on the side of the carton. L&M said it distributed 1,590 bulk cartons of the cucumbers in question between March 30 and April 7 to New York, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Nebraska. Texas and Wyoming.
“Despite the limited direct distribution of the one recalled lot, L&M Companies is issuing a nationwide recall out of an abundance of caution because the company recognizes the possibility that wholesale customers could have redistributed the product in states beyond those listed above,” a company statement said.
