WASHINGTON - Kirkland Signature Course Ground Malabar Pepper is being recalled because it may be contaminated with salmonella.

The recalled ground pepper was sold exclusively at Costco stores nationwide between April 4th and June 4th of this year.

The recall covers 12.7 oz. plastic jars with a best before date of 03/2017. It affects 5,153 cases with lot numbers OT 065099, OT 065169, OT 065254, OT 065255, OT 065256, and OT 065284. The lot numbers are located below the back label.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in young children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infections can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses.

The FDA is urging people who have the recalled ground pepper not to use it. Instead, throw away the product and its container.
