Just when you thought it was safe to eat raw alfalfa sprouts, the salmonella returns!
In an incident unrelated to the last alfalfa attack, there is now a food company in Culver City, California recalling their alfalfa.
This time it’s from Kowalke Organics. They say it isn’t safe to eat a few of their products, which can be found here. Interestingly enough, they are primarily sold in the fancy grocery stores like Gelson’s and Whole Foods.
I am of the opinion that it’s never entirely safe to be eating raw vegetables, but when salmonella is involved, it just gets that much worse.
