Popular Carrots Recalled Nationwide Due to Possible Salmonella Contamination [Prevention]

Published July 27, 2021

Prevention reported on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s voluntary recall of several popular brands of carrots due to salmonella concerns and quoted Thomas Russo, professor and chief of infectious diseases at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. “The carrots could be contaminated at multiple spots, but probably the most likely scenario would be some combination of contaminated ground water or fertilizer when they’re in the ground,” he said.
