FDA, CDC Issue Advisory About Tainted Raw Alfalfa Sprouts

The government is asking people to avoid eating raw alfalfa sprouts, including sprout blends that contain alfalfa sprouts, because of possible Salmonella contamination. An investigation by the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that some seeds for alfalfa sprouts may be contaminated. There have been 31 cases of illness reported since mid-March in Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, and West Virginia; most of the illnesses happened in people who said they’d eaten raw alfalfa sprouts that were obtained at restaurants or bought in stores.
