McCormick Recalls Seasonings Sold at Walmart and Target for Salmonella Contamination

McCormick & Company is voluntarily recalling three of its seasonings because of possible salmonella contamination.

According to a USA Today news report, the three recalled seasonings are McCormick Perfect Pinch Italian Seasoning, McCormick Culinary Italian Seasoning, and Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Ranch Seasoning.

Officials with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said the company has not reported any illnesses or deaths as a result of these recalled products.

Details of the Recall

The seasonings were sold at select Walmart, Target, Kroger, and other stores nationwide. McCormick has alerted customers and grocery outlets to remove the product with the affected date codes from store shelves and distribution centers right away. The affected products were shipped to 32 states including California as well as Bermuda and Canada between June 20 and July 21, the company said.

McCormick said consumers don’t need to return the product to the store where it was purchased and is urging them to dispose of the recalled product and its container. For more information, contact McCormick at 1-800-635-2867. There have been several recalls involving food in July alone, including Tyson chicken, muffins, and baby carrots.

Why is Salmonella Dangerous?

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), salmonella causes about 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 450 deaths in the United States every year. Food is the source of about one million of these illnesses. A vast majority of those infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment. However, in some people, diarrhea might be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized.

If you or a loved one has been sickened by these McCormick spice products or any other type of defective or contaminated food products, it is important that you get prompt medical attention, treatment, and care for your damages and losses. Victims of food poisoning can seek compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost income, hospitalization, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Be sure to get prompt medical attention and report your illness to your local healthcare agency, which tracks these types of food-borne illnesses. An experienced California food poisoning lawyer will be able to help victims evaluate their legal rights and options.
