Salmonella Found in Snacks’ Seasoning

The Associated Press reported that the seasoning on the Veggie Booty snack was contaminated with salmonella. Full Story from the Washington Post

WASHINGTON — A seasoning made with imported Chinese ingredients used on recalled snack foods was contaminated with salmonella, a company official said Tuesday. The snack foods sickened dozens of people.

The seasoning, used on both Super Veggie Tings Crunchy Corn Sticks and Veggie Booty snack foods, tested positive for the bacteria, said Robert Ehrlich, president and chief executive of Robert’s American Gourmet Inc. The "veggie" seasoning’s ingredients came primarily from China, the company said.
