Some jumbo green onions are recalled

A California company says it has recalled 772 cartons of Omo and Fu Choy brand iced jumbo green onions because of possible bacterial contamination.

NewStar Fresh Foods LLC of Salinas, Calif., said the possibly tainted green onions were distributed from three locations -- R.A.M. Produce Distributors of Detroit, Franzella Distributing of San Francisco and United Food Service of East Point, Ga.

The product is packaged in 48-count iced cartons with item numbers 02487403 and 02487452, product lot numbers 40550707 and 40510707 and with production dates of July 20 and July 21.

Company officials said although it is likely the jumbo green onions are now beyond their usable life, the recall was issued because some consumers might have the product in their home refrigerators.

Customers who purchased the jumbo green onions may return them for a refund. Customers with questions can contact the company at 831-758-7810.
