Calif. plant’s spice linked to salmonella
California health officials added Uncle Chen pepper Tuesday to a list of spices from a Union City plant that may carry salmonella.
Union International Food Co. spices have been linked to 42 possible salmonella cases in four states, including 33 in California, the state Department of Public Health said. The company's product line includes spices for Asian foods.
Union International has initiated a voluntary recall of the spices.
