SunSprout Enterprises Food Poisoning Symptoms

Which SunSprout Products Were Recalled?

On December 29, 2022, SunSprout Enterprises initiated a voluntary recall of two lots (# 4211 and 5211) of raw alfalfa sprouts due to potential contamination with Salmonella. On the same day, SunSprout Enterprises expanded their voluntary recall to include two additional lots (# 3212, and 4212) of raw alfalfa sprouts. The raw alfalfa sprouts for all recalled lots (#4211, 5211, 3212, and 4212) are packaged in 4-ounce clamshells and 2.5-lb packages with best sold by dates between 12/10/2022 and 1/7/2023.

Recalled products were sold fresh and are now past shelf-life and should no longer be available for sale. If you have any of the recalled products, FDA recommends that you dispose of them immediately.

What is Salmonella Typhimurium?

Salmonella Typhimurium is a type of bacteria that can cause illness in humans. It is often found in raw or undercooked meat, poultry, eggs, and unpasteurized dairy products. In this case, the bacteria was found in SunSprout-brand alfalfa sprouts.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection can include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Body aches
  • Dehydration

These symptoms usually appear within 6-72 hours after exposure and can last up to a week. Most people recover without treatment, but some may require hospitalization. If you have any of these symptoms and suspect that you may have been exposed to Salmonella, seek medical attention immediately. It’s important to note that some people may be carriers of Salmonella without showing any symptoms, but can still spread the infection to others.

You typically have two years from the date of the illness to file a lawsuit. However, this timeline can vary depending on the state where the illness occurred. It’s important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected.
