Williams Foods LLC has initiated a voluntary recall of taco seasoning product due to possible presence of Salmonella contamination.
According to Williams, these items contain cumin spice involved in a recall initiated by its supplier, Mincing Spice Co. Mincing has issued a recall for a specific lot of cumin they produced because a sample from that lot was tested by one of Mincing's customers and was found to be potentially contaminated with Salmonella.
A portion of the lot recalled by Mincing was supplied to Williams Foods, LLC. The company is recalling the products listed here as a precautionary action; to date there have been no consumer complaints or reported cases of Salmonellosis in connection with these products. Salmonella 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, 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.
