Check your refrigerator immediately: Green Life Farms baby arugula is being recalled due to potential Salmonella contamination.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has announced an urgent recall of Green Life Farms brand baby arugula due to possible Salmonella contamination.

Routine testing found the bacteria in one harvest of the product.

Recall Details

The affected baby arugula was sold in 4-ounce containers at select Publix stores.

It was available for purchase between May 31 and June 7, 2024.

The recalled packages have a sell-by date of June 15, 2024, and a lot code of LW15124 stamped on the top of the clear plastic packaging.

What You Should Do

While no illnesses have been reported so far, consumers are urged to return the recalled baby arugula to the store for a full refund.

Salmonella can be particularly dangerous for pregnant women, the elderly, immunocompromised individuals, and young children.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection include stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. These symptoms typically appear within 12 to 72 hours of infection and can last up to a week.

If you have consumed the recalled arugula and experience any symptoms of Salmonella infection, contact your healthcare provider immediately.

Additionally, after disposing of the product, follow the U.S. Department of Agriculture's guidelines for cleaning and safe handling to prevent the spread of Salmonella to other foods and surfaces.
