Colorado is one of six states where baby carrots were sold that may be contaminated with bacteria that could cause diarrhea, nausea, fever and vomiting.
The Los Angeles Salad Co. Wednesday said it was voluntarily recalling its "Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots" because the carrots might be contaminated with the bacteria called shigella.
The product was sold under two labels. One is "Los Angeles Salad Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots" with a sell-by date up to and including Aug. 16, 2007, sold in 7-ounce and 8-ounce bags and distributed in California, Colorado, Florida and Georgia.
The other is "Trader Joe's Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots" with a sell-by date up to and including Aug. 8, 2007, sold in 7-ounce bags and distributed in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington. Details: Call the company at 1-626-322-9017 with questions.
