Giant Food Takes Recalled Oregano off Store Shelves

Posted:
LANDOVER, Md.- McCormick & Company, Inc. is recalling more than 74,000 bottles of ground oregano that could be contaminated with salmonella.

The spice maker issued a voluntary recall of some 0.75-ounce bottles of McCormick Ground Oregano Wednesday. Recalled bottles are labeled with a Universal Product Code of 0-523561-6 and have best-buy dates of Aug. 21 and Aug. 22.

Following the recall, Giant Food announced it removed McCormick Ground Oregano from its shelves.  Giant says it has received no reports of illnesses to date.

According to the Centers for Disease and Prevention, Salmonella infections can be life-threatening, especially to those with weak immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. The most common manifestations of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours. Additional symptoms may be chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days.
 
McCormick recommends customers who have purchased the product to discard any unused portions.
