Safeway is voluntarily recalling green onions because they may be contaminated with salmonella. The recalled green onions, also known as scallions, were sold from August 3rd through August 7, 2004 in Safeway and Pak ‘n Save stores located in Northern California and Western Nevada.
Business Wire report that the salmonella was detected through routine testing by the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
Safeway and Safeway-owned Pak ‘n Save will provide a full refund to anyone who returns this product or has proof that they purchased this product at the store from August 3rd through August 7th.
"Safeway’s first concern is the health and safety of our customers," said Frank Calfas, President, Safeway Northern California Division. "Though there are no reported cases of any illnesses, this voluntary recall is being done solely out of an abundance of caution."
