A Southern California company has recalled alfalfa sprouts that may be contaminated with salmonella.
Los Angeles Calco, Inc. of Arcadia announced Tuesday that it is recalling 4-ounce containers of sprouts that it distributed to three wholesalers in Los Angeles and Costa Mesa.
The containers carry sell-by dates of April 23 and May 2.
A company official says the sprouts were sold to restaurants but did not go to any retail markets.
Calco says routine testing detected salmonella in some samples but no illnesses have been reported.
Salmonella bacteria can cause diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infections can be deadly to young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
