SOUTH FLORIDA (CBSMiami) — Whole Foods Market is recalling Treasure Trove Mix, sold as a bulk item, in three South Florida stores due to possible Salmonella contamination.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Below is a list of Whole Foods Market stores in South Florida that were affected, and the recalled products that were sold at those locations:

These products were sold from self-serve bulk bins and have no label. The recalled items were sold between May 1st and September 27th in the South Florida Whole Foods Market stores listed above.
