Fullei Fresh is voluntarily recalling alfalfa sprouts due to the detection of Shiga toxin producing E.coli (STEC.) Shiga toxin producing E.coli is an organism that can cause foodborne illness in a person who eats a food item contaminated with it.
STEC is a bacterial strain that is not part of our routine microbial testing conducted in compliance with the FDA’s Produce Safety Rule Subpart M on every lot produced. It was detected upon sampling of finished product by the FDA. There have been no known illnesses reported to date in connection with this product.
The affected Fullei Fresh brand alfalfa sprout lot number is 336. They were shipped to distributors and retailers in Florida between December 9-23, 2022. No other lots or products are affected.
The lot numbers are printed on the 8 ounce retail packs and on 5 lb. bulk cardboard boxes in the barcode (the last 3 digits being 336.) Should you be in possession of these products, please discard.
This recall is being made with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration and the Florida Department of Agriculture.
