McCormick’s Ground Oregano Recalled Due To Salmonella

August 18th, 2014

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the popular spice producer McCormick has voluntarily recalled its McCormick Ground Oregano due to a possible salmonella contamination. Check your spice racks and be sure to remove the following product:

McCormick Ground Oregano, 0.75oz bottle
UPC 0-523561-6 with code dates BEST BY AUG 21 16 H and AUG 22 16 H

The bottles being recalled were shipped to 41 different states, including the Baltimore, Maryland area, between April 4th and August 5, 2014

The FDA discovered the contamination during routine testing. McCormick has contacted grocery stores and notified them of the recall and requested that McCormick Ground Oregano with the above UPC codes and dates be removed from the shelves and destroyed.

The recall does not impact any other McCormick Ground Oregano, Whole Oregano or Oregano Leaves.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious illness and possibly fatal infections in otherwise healthy people. It is especially dangerous for younger children, the elderly and those with weekend immune systems.

There have been no illnesses due to the contamination reported as of yet.

It is all too common for major companies to recall particular goods due to defect. Manufacturers and sellers of products must be held accountable for placing safe products into the marketplace.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury from a recalled or defective product, contact The Yost Legal Group to discuss a potential Product Liability case.

Product Liability cases can be founded on one or more of the following examples:

Defective Design:  A design defect is frequently the result of poor engineering or considerations in the development of how to build the product.

Manufacturing Defects: Sometimes a product is designed properly, but it was not made correctly to its specifications. Sometimes incorrect materials are used when producing a product.

Failure to Warn:  Certain side effects can be the result of using a product and it is the company’s duty to list such things as adverse effects. Warnings are particularly important when it comes to specific drugs and over the counter medicines.
