Wisconsin’s Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection is not waiting for someone to get sick with salmonella after finding sprouts contaminated with the bacteria.
Instead, Wisconsin is recalling packaged sprouts from Sunrise Farms Inc. of Neenah. The grower was ordered to tell its customers to remove the alfalfa sprouts, Spicy Sprouts, Crunchy Sprouts and Onion Sprouts from store shelves. They are sold in 4-ounce packages throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Sunrise has sanitized its facility and is working with the state to determine how the contamination happened. No illnesses have yet been associated with the recall.
