Salmonella concerns trigger Bell pepper recall

Orange County Produce is recalling red and green Bell Peppers after a random sample tested positive for Salmonella.

The recall is limited to three lots (Lot # SB 7 920, 923, 924) containing 1,208 25-pound cartons of peppers. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The lots were distributed to farmer's markets and wholesale foodservice within Southern California Sept. 21-24. The product was shipped in cases under the "OC Harvest" labels.

The product is typically sold to retail, foodservice and farmer's market level in bulk weight and has no retail packaging associated with it. All retail suppliers directed to immediately remove and destroy any remaining product in their inventories.
