Caldwell issued a recall for its alfalfa sprouts (see Caldwell Sprout Recall) on May 21, 2010.   

The Salmonella Newport cases were reported per state as follows: Arizona (2), California (17), Colorado (1), Indiana (5), Illinois (1), Missouri (1), New Mexico (1), Nevada (2), Oregon (2), Pennsylvania (1), and Wisconsin (2). 

The recalled sprouts had been distributed to a variety of restaurants, delicatessens and retailers, including Trader Joe's and Wal-Mart stores.  Food poisoning outbreaks and recalls related to raw sprouts have become too common, and during the outbreak, FDA reminded sprout producers that the likelihood of Salmonella and other pathogens in sprouts can be reduced by employing preventive controls contained in FDA’s Sprout Guidance.  

Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning may include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain. Symptoms usually appear within 12-72 hours after the ingestion of contaminated food.
