Don't eat this Publix product if you bought it recently, FDA warns

Gulf Live - 6/19/2024

Florida-based band Green Life Farms is voluntarily recalling one lot of its 4-ounce containers of baby arugula due to the potential for salmonella contamination.

According to an announcement from the Food and Drug Administration, the recalled products were available for sale at select Publix locations from May 31 and have a sell by date of June 15. The recall applies only to products marked with Lot #LW15124. The product comes in a 4-ounce, clear plastic package marked with the lot code stamped on the top.

The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the company revealed the presence of salmonella in a single harvest of baby arugula. The company took immediate corrective action and additional harvests remain unaffected.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem, according to the announcement. Consumers who have purchased baby arugula marked with the affected lot code are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-888-213-9603 or by email at info@greenlifefarms.ag.

Symptoms of salmonella can include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. The illness usually occurs within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food and typically lasts four to seven days. Children younger than five, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have severe infections.
