I saw this post on seriouseats.com today and immediately thought I should share it with my readers knowing that a lot of you thoroughly enjoy eating raw sprouts as well. On April 26, 2009 the following statement was released -
"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) [on April 26] recommended that consumers not eat raw alfalfa sprouts, including sprout blends containing alfalfa sprouts, until further notice because the product has been linked to Salmonella serotype Saintpaul contamination. Other types of sprouts have not been implicated at this time."
SAD. I LOVE sprouts :( I go through a big container a week usually.
