A recall has been issued for certain kinds of taco seasoning due to concerns they have been contaminated with salmonella.
The FDA has announced the voluntary recall of Great Value Mild Taco Seasoning Mix and HEB Taco Seasoning Mix Reduced Sodium.
These items contain cumin spice involved in a recall initiated Mincing Spice Co.
Testing found that a specific lot of cumin the company produced was found to be potentially contaminated with Salmonella.
A portion of the lot recalled by Mincing was supplied to Williams Foods, LLC.
“We are recalling our products listed above as a precautionary action; to date, there have been no consumer complaints or reported cases of Salmonellosis in connection with these products,” officials said.
The product is sold in select retail grocery stores located in Washington, D.C. and the following states:

- New York

Williams is recalling the products out of an abundance of caution, saying there have been no reports of illness.
