Some of the 5-ounce packages of alfalfa sprouts sold by River Valley Sprouts have tested positive for the presence of salmonella. As a result, the company is voluntarily recalling its 5-ounce Alfalfa Sprouts, 4-ounce Alfalfa Sprouts, 5-ounce Garlic/Alfalfa, and 5-ounce Variety sprouts.

River Valley Sprouts has suspended production of its alfalfa sprout products while the investigation continues into the salmonella contamination issues. The company states that every batch of seed is sanitized at 20,000 PPM of calcium hypochlorite and irrigation water is tested for salmonella and E. coli.

The sprout packages being recalled out of food safety concerns were packed and shipped by River Valley Sprouts between March 6 and March 15. The potentially contaminated sprouts were distributed in Minnesota and Wisconsin where consumers would have purchased them in a number of grocery stores. Some of the recalled sprouts, which are packaged in plastic cups or clam containers, are labeled with sell by dates of March 15 to March 25.
