RALEIGH, N.C. — A North Carolina company is recalling thousands of cucumbers that could be contaminated with salmonella.
L&M Companies Inc. said Friday there have been no reports of illness with its cucumbers, and none of its other products are involved.
The company says it decided on the recall after federal inspectors found salmonella last week on cucumbers at a Florida business. They were harvested on a south Florida farm at the end of March,
The cucumbers were distributed whole and in bulk in cartons marked Nature's Delight with a lot number of PL-RID-002990. They were sent on April 7 to wholesalers in New York, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Nebraska, Texas and Wyoming.
