Louie Foods International, a Fresno, Calif.-based company, is recalling its alfalfa, clover, and broccoli sprouts over fears that the vegetables have been contaminated with salmonella. After a random test made by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) detected salmonella in a package of the company’s alfalfa-clover sprouts, the company decided to announce a full recall as a precaution. Those infected with salmonella can suffer from diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain, and the virus can be fatal in children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. No illnesses from the sprouts have been reported.
