Jarred Salsa from Ohio Recalled Over Botulism Risk
Jose Madrid Salsa of Zanesville, OH, has recalled its mild salsa because the jars are not properly sealed and therefore present a health risk. Improperly sealed jars can lead to product spoilage or contamination by the bacteria that cause botulism.
Jose Madrid salsa jar lids may have been convex instead of vacuum sealed, according to the company. Compromised seals or seams could result in product contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens and may lead to illness if consumed. These jars were distributed in the Zanesville and Baltimore, MD, areas.
Approximately 96 jars of product sold are involved in this recall. Individual jars will show product lot code:
There have been no reports to date of any illness associated with these products.
