L&M issued the recall from its headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina. The company’s press release states that the cucumbers were distributed in bulk cartons to wholesale retailers. Approximately 1,590 of the bulk cartons were shipped from March 30th to April 7th.
Affected cucumbers may have been sold in the Midwest states of Illinois, Indiana, and Nebraska. Southern states that received the cucumbers include Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas. New York and Wyoming retailers also sold the cucumbers. The cucumbers may have been resold to additional states.
The bulk cartons in question have a Nature’s Delight label. The recalled lot number is PL-RID-002990, according to the FDA.
Inspectors with the Food and Drug Administration discovered the possible salmonella contamination through random testing in the middle of April. The samples came from cucumbers at Four Seasons Produce in central Florida.
The L&M press release noted that their products are safe and that the recall was made for the safety of the company’s customers. L&M stated that the cucumbers had a limited distribution but the company warns customers in non-listed states to watch out for resold cucumbers.
