Washington sprouts may be contaminated

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare is warning consumers to avoid eating packaged alfalfa sprouts from Harmony Farms of Auburn, Wash., because the sprouts may be contaminated with salmonella.

The company has voluntarily recalled its "Fresh Alfalfa Sprouts," "Gourmet Salad Sprouts" and "Fresh Alfalfa & Oregon Onion Sprouts" in 5-ounce packages.

It has also recalled its "Harmony Farms Alfalfa Sprouts" in 1-, 2-, 3- and 5-pound packages.

Nine cases of Salmonella Saintpaul in Oregon and Washington have been linked to alfalfa sprouts by the Oregon Department of Human Services. More suspected cases are being investigated.

The products were distributed to retail outlets, restaurants and schools in Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Alaska, primarily.

Anyone with questions can contact Harmony Farms at (253) 833-8945.
