Salmonella Recall:
Lidl's Golden Sun Organic Grains (Amaranth)


Lidl recalls its Golden Sun Organic Grains (Amaranth) because it contains Salmonella

Golden Sun Organic Grains (Amaranth)

Amaranth is a grain with beautiful flowers, containing over 60 species. The seeds and cooked leaves, the roots and stems can all be eaten, and are a major source of nutrition throughout the world.

Amaranth is very easy to grow, and contains no gluten, making it suitable for those with a gluten allergy or intolerance.

Salmonella

Salmonella is a common cause of illness in the world. Common symptoms are diarrhoea, stomach pain, nausea, fever and sometimes vomiting.

Salmonella can be found in the guts of animals and humans, and thus can be in foods such as raw meat and poultry, unpasteurised dairy products and eggs. It is therefore unusual to find it in this amaranth, which may have gotten there due to cross contamination, but no information has been given on this.
