McCormick’s Ground Oregano Recalled Due To Salmonella

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.
