Coles, IGA And More Issue Product Recall

Before you throw a few sprouts in your sandwich, have a quick check where they're from.

Some Sunshine Sprouts have found to contain salmonella and are currently being recalled.

Dr Chris Lease, SA Health acting executive director announced: "A number of Sunshine Sprouts alfalfa sprouts products have already been voluntarily recalled and we are advising anyone who has purchased the affected products not to eat them, and to return them to the place of purchase for a refund, or throw them away," Dr Lease said.

"In cases of salmonella a common food source is not often identified, however testing of retail product confirmed its presence in a variety of alfalfa sprout products.

"We are working closely with the producer and suppliers while we continue to investigate."

Sunshine Sprouts are commonly found at Coles, Foodland, IGA and smaller greengrocers.

Symptoms of salmonella typically present between 6 to 72 hours and can last up to a week.  They include fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, cramps and headaches.

Best skip the sprouts today, right?
