Penzeys Spices is recalling its packages of Hungarian Half-Sharp Paprika, sold in Texas and elsewhere, because of the possibility of salmonella contamination.
The Brookfield, Wis., company said the recall involves 1,724 pounds of the spice sold since last August in a variety of sizes, according to the Associated Press.
The company distributes spices through mail order and Penzeys Spices stores in Texas, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
The company said no reports of illness have been received but the recall was initiated after routine testing by the state of Florida revealed the presence of salmonella in some 2.5-ounce jars of the paprika.
Production of the product has been suspended.
