At least three lots of MDH’s sambar masala were withdrawn from the US earlier this week after tests conducted by the country’s food and drug regulator revealed that the products contained salmonella, it said.

“This product was tested by FDA through a certified laboratory to be positive for salmonella,” stated the US Food and Drug Authority (US FDA) in an official release on the move. “The recall was initiated after it was discovered by the FDA that the salmonella contaminated products were distributed,” it added. The statement does not specify that the recall was voluntary.

Salmonella is a bacteria that causes salmonellosis, a common food borne illness with symptoms like diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. Most people recover from it without treatment, but some may have diarrhea so severe that they would require hospitalisation, according to the FDA. In more severe cases, patients may develop a high fever, aches, headaches, lethargy, rash, blood in the urine or stool and, in some cases, salmonellosis may become fatal, according to it.

The recalled lots (codes: 47, 48 and 107) were manufactured by R-Pure Agro Specialities, sold by US-based supplier ‘House of Spices’ and distributed in northern California retail stores. R-Pure has the same directors on its board as MDH, according to data accessed by The Indian Express on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) website on Tuesday.
