Before you give your pepper mill a few twists, you might want to check your peppercorns. Food Safety News is reporting today, April 4, 2014, that the national chain of "organic" markets called Sprouts, is recalling their brand of organic black peppercorns for possible salmonella contamination.

Sprouts said the recall was issued after a sample taken during routine testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration revealed the presence of Salmonella in one lot.

The product is sold in clear glass 2.12 ounce jars with an expiration date of October 2016. As a precaution, Sprouts is also recalling their Frontier-branded organic whole black peppercorns sold in a 16-ounce container and Simply Organic-branded whole black peppercorns sold in a 2.65-ounce jar.

To see pictures of the products being recalled and get the information on the product codes, go the the Sprouts internet web page.
