The Los Angeles Salad Co. said it was voluntarily recalling its “Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots” because the carrots might be contaminated with the bacteria called shigella.

The other is “Trader Joe’s Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots” with a sell-by date up to and including Aug. 8, 2007, sold in 7-ounce bags and distributed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington.
