Tupperware U.S., Inc. recalls Southwest Chipotle Seasoning that may be contaminated with Salmonella

Tupperware U.S., Inc. recalls Southwest Chipotle Seasoning that may be contaminated with Salmonella

 

Orlando, Florida, 2017-Jan-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tupperware U.S., Inc. of Orlando, Florida, is voluntarily recalling limited quantities of Southwest Chipotle Seasoning, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.  The product was manufactured for Tupperware by a third party blender of fine spices and seasonings.   This recall is being carried out in an abundance of caution after the FDA found traces of Salmonella at the facility where buttermilk powder, one ingredient in the seasoning mix, was manufactured.

A limited number of Seasoning packets were distributed nationwide to consumers.  The only impacted packages of Seasoning show LOT #16189305 on the back of the package, above the Best By date.  Please see label below to help with identifying the product.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

To Tupperware’s knowledge, no Salmonella has been found in the buttermilk powder shipped to its seasoning manufacturer by the ingredient supplier, and Tupperware has not received any information from the manufacturer indicating that Salmonella has been found in the Southwest Chipotle Seasoning itself.

Tupperware has not experienced any problems or complaints about this product, and no illnesses have been reported.  This recall is a precautionary measure only.  Anyone in possession of any of the recalled product should send it to:

Tupperware U.S., Inc.
ATTN: Julie Castro
14901 South Orange Blossom Trail
Orlando, FL 32837

The returning party should include a name, address, phone number and email address. Once the product is received, Tupperware will send, in return, a $15 eGift Certificate, per Seasoning package, to cover the cost of the product and shipping.

Please forward this message to anyone else who has purchased the Southwest Chipotle Seasoning since August 2, 2016. If you have any questions, please call Customer Care at 1-800-TUPPERWARE (1-800-887-7379).
