Updated December 30 to include expanded recall information. A Salmonella recall for alfalfa sprouts produced by SunSprout Enterprises of Fremont, Nebraska has expanded to include additional lots and sizes. These sprouts have been linked to a Salmonella outbreak.
The alfalfa sprout recall initially included two lots of raw alfalfa sprouts that were directly distributed to five foodservice and grocery customers in Nebraska, Kansas, and Iowa from late November to December 2022. The expanded recall now includes four lots and a second size.

The recall now includes alfalfa sprouts packaged in 4-ounce clamshells and 2.5lb packages with “best sold by” dates ranging between 12/10/2022 and 1/7/2023 and lot codes 4211, 5211, 3212, and 4212.
The problem was discovered by Nebraska health officials as part of their investigation into a Salmonella outbreak associated with alfalfa sprouts. The people sickened in the outbreak reported eating sprouts they purchased at grocery stores or in meals they ordered at restaurants before they became ill.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection, which include fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea that can be bloody, usually develop within six to 72 hours of exposure. Consumers who ate the recalled sprouts and developed these symptoms should see a doctor and mention exposure.
