The CDC recently issued a report warning consumers of a link between Chia Powder and Salmonella. Chia Powder, which is a popular dietary supplement amongst fitness buffs, is claimed to have a number of health benefits. However, the NYT reports that certain brands of the supplement have been recalled due to fears of further salmonella outbreaks.
Some of the recalled brands are Organic Traditions, Green Smoothie Girl, Navitas Naturals and Williams-Sonoma. Twenty-one people in 12 states have been sickened with salmonella linked to the chia powder, the C.D.C. said.
Illnesses were reported in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.
Consumers should be aware of the recalled brands, and should check CDC reports before purchasing Chia Powder in the near future.
