North Dakota-based Swanson Health Products recalling some packages of organic celery seed because it has potential to be contaminated with salmonella

FARGO, North Dakota , December 19, 2011 () – Swanson Health Products says it is recalling some packages of organic celery seed because it has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

The recall affects Swanson Organic Celery Seed (Whole) packaged in plastic bottles with a net weight of 1.4 ounces. The product was sold between June 16 and Dec. 16

Swanson Health Products says the spice was sold either at the company's Fargo retail store, shipped directly to online or mail-order consumers, or held for pick up by the consumer at the company's headquarters.

The company says it became aware of the potential contamination after being notified by its supplier, B & M Inc., of Mount Vernon, Mo., which had earlier learned of the potential contamination from its supplier.
