LOS ANGELES, May 5 (UPI) -- Anhing Corp. of Los Angeles is conducting a national recall of Caravelle Brand Chili Powder due to the potential of Salmonella. The Chili Powder -- in 8-ounce plastic tubs with lot code 560916 -- is sold in a clear plastic tub with a red lid. The spice was sold in retail stores nationwide. No illnesses were reported.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the product has an orange paper label, which says: “Caravelle CHILI POWDER HOT Net Weight 8 oz. Packed For ANHING CORP.} Product of Thailand." The label also contains Thai and Chinese wording.
The Bar Code is 080736115551. The lot codes, 560916 or 570115, of the recalled spices are located on a white label at the bottom of the plastic tub, the FDA said.
The recall was triggered by routine testing by the state of Maryland. Anhing stopped distributing the spice as the FDA and the company continued their investigation for the cause.
