Idaho company recalls alfalfa sprouts, citing salmonella threat

A potential salmonella outbreak has prompted a multi-state recall of sprouts, an Idaho food company announced Friday.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration made a formal recall request Monday, urging on its website that people not eat alfalfa or spicy sprouts from Evergreen Fresh Sprouts. The federal agency noted that the salmonella Enteritidis pathogen is different from the E. coli bacteria that has been blamed for at least 47 deaths, and widespread recalls, in Europe.
