The products were sold in dozens of states including North Carolina.

The seasoning packets contain a cumin spice that was recalled by Mincing Spice Co. for potentially being contaminated with salmonella. A portion of Mincing Spice’s cumin was supplied to Williams Foods LLC.

Salmonella symptoms incluse fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. It can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune symptoms.

Williams Foods LLC has not received any consumer complaints or reported sickness, however they are recalling the seasoning as a precautionary measure.
