Pepper recalled after 33 Californians sickened

March 28, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
California public health officials are warning people not to eat a dozen spices packaged at a Union City plant under the Lian How brand name. A salmonella outbreak that has sickened 33 people in California and nine people in three other states caused the Union International Food Company to voluntarily recall of its pepper, paprika, curry, onion powder and other products.

The state health department said Saturday that most of the people who got sick appeared to have been exposed to salmonella white eating at Asian restaurants that used the company's white and black peppers.

Salmonella poisoning causes diarrhea and vomiting. It can be fatal in children and others with weakened immune systems.
