Georgine Hertzwig of Robert's American Gourmet, based in Sea Cliff, NY, said that the product had not tested positive for Salmonella, but that the recall had been undertaken as a precaution given the FDA findings. 

Veggie Booty is sold in many grocery outlets, including supermarkets and health food stores, throughout the U.S. and Canada. It is also available on-line and by mail order. All bag sizes, codes and expiration dates are subject to the recall.
