Veggie Booty snacks recalled

June 29, 2007|From Times Wire Services

Robert's American Gourmet Food Inc. recalled all its Veggie Booty snacks across the U.S. and Canada because the mix might be contaminated with salmonella, regulators said Thursday.

Fifty-one people in 17 states, mostly children age 3 and younger, were infected with potentially deadly salmonella bacteria linked to eating Veggie Booty, according to a statement posted on the Food and Drug Administration's website. The snack, which contains vegetables such as kale and spinach, is sold in grocery stores and over the Internet.

U.S. health officials haven't confirmed a link between the finished product and salmonella, the FDA said. Robert's, based in Sea Cliff, N.Y., has stopped making and distributing the snack food, pending results of the investigation, according to the company's website.

The company said consumers who purchased Veggie Booty should discard the contents and contact the company at (800) 626-7557 for reimbursement.
