Read This If You Recently Bought Baby Carrots

Everyone knows that carrots are great for health and can be easy to incorporate into your diet. You can eat them raw, add them to soups, or crunchy salads. The options are truly endless. According to Healthline, carrots are also full of nutrients such as fiber, beta carotene, potassium, vitamin K1, antioxidants, and more. They are even known to help fight against cancer. However, the downside is that carrots may get spoilt if they're "exposed to contaminated water" or are grown in an environment that's less than ideal.

If you've purchased baby carrots recently, you need to sit up and take notice. As per Food Safety News, Grimmway Farms has decided to recall several products to check for contamination. It has been suspected that a salmonella outbreak may be involved and many customers could be at risk.  Grimmway Farms President and CEO Jeff Huckaby said in a statement, "The recall was initiated as a result of a routine, internal company test."

The company is investigating further

According to Food Safety News, no reports have been released yet of any illnesses that could have been possibly linked to the latest recall. The company's CEO emphasized that they're dedicated to ensuring the safety of their customers. He said, "The health of our customers and the integrity of our products are our highest priorities, and we will continue to monitor and communicate as additional information is available."

However, it's possible that customers still have the carrots products in their homes thanks to their shelf life. The company has contacted the shoppers who bought the products from Grimmway Farms. If you suspect that you may have the recalled products, you can double-check by referring to the photos shared by the Food & Drug Administration. The official advice is to get rid of these products immediately. A statement from Grimmway Farms reads, "Consumers with questions may contact our customer services desk at 1-800-301-3101 or visit"
