Jonathans Sprouts Extends Recall of Alfalfa Sprouts

Jonathans Sprouts of Rochester, MA, is extending its alfalfa sprout recall.  The original recall was for conventional products with a specific sell-by date; they are now including all Jonathans alfalfa products (listed below), conventional and organic, with all sell-by dates.

Jonathans Sprouts are sold at the following stores: A&P, Grand Union, Stop & Shop, Shaws, Hannaford, Donnelans, Foodmaster, Truccis and Roche Brothers.  They are distributed in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

The recall is a precaution, resulting from a potential Salmonella contamination. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that the Salmonella organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

According to the FDA, healthy persons who become infected often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.  In rare circumstances, Salmonella infections can result in a bloodstream infection, producing more severe illnesses.

Jonathans Sprouts is urging consumers who purchased a product containing alfalfa sprouts to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 508-763-2577.

The affected products are:

  • Jonathan’s 4oz Alfalfa Sprouts – all sell-by dates
