Two types of packaged dried mushrooms, which are sold in 15 states, were recalled after the Maryland Department of Health found salmonella in some packs.
Tai Phat Wholesalers LLC of Capitol Heights, Maryland, recalled “Three Coins Dried Mushrooms” due to the health risk, the FDA reported.
Tai Phat Wholesalers announced on Monday that the recall covered four different types of packages. The Maryland Department of Health discovered salmonella during a routine testing of a retail store.
The four different types are Nam Meo Soi 2.5 oz, Nam Meo Soi 10.5 oz, Nam Meo Nguyen 2.5 oz, and Nam Meo Nguyen 10.5 oz.
Sales of the mushrooms have been suspended.
The mushrooms are sold in 15 different states: Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
WebMd describes salmonella as a “type of bacteria that’s the most frequently reported cause of food-related illness.” Symptoms of salmonella include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Recovery time is usually 4-7 days.
There have been no reported illnesses so far from the mushrooms, the FDA said.
Consumers are being directed to return the items to where they bought them from for a full refund.
