Salmonella worries spur food recall


Suspected contamination has spurred a Beaverton, Ore., company to issue a voluntary recall for some of its products.

Reser's Fine Foods, Inc. has been notified by a supplier that certain seasoning ingredients supplied to the company may be contaminated with salmonella, an organism that can sicken healthy people and cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled products, Steve Loehndorf, company technical services director, said in a release today.

The recall is for 12 types of salad dressing, flavored dips and potato salad products supplied to stores and restaurants. People who have purchased the products may return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

A list of the recalled products is available online and consumers with questions can call the Reser's Fine Foods Inc. Consumer Hotline at 1-888-230-0062 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
