Salmonella contamination prompts paprika recall

8/28/2000-Florida-based Badia Spices Inc. is recalling about 22,000 bottles of paprika because the spice may be contaminated with Salmonella. The Miami company recalled "Badia Paprika" that has the expiration date 11-2002, and the UPC number 33844-00011. The paprika is sold in 2-ounce plastic bottles. Florida agriculture officials discovered the Salmonella during routine testing. Badia imports the spice from Spain and said a supply arrived contaminated. The Food and Drug Administration classified the recall as nationwide, although Badia said sales were in East Coast states between Florida and New York, and in Texas. The FDA said some recalled paprika also may have been exported to the Caribbean and Latin America. No illnesses have been reported.
