For those of you that make your own rubs, as well as the commercial folks, I just discovered this notice.

Paprika Recall Expanded Over Contamination Fears

Associated Press

Penzeys Spices has expanded its recall of Hungarian Sweet Paprika, sold nationwide, because of possible salmonella contamination.

The Brookfield, Wis., company said Friday the recall involves all sizes of Hungarian Sweet Paprika distributed Jan. 2-9 through mail orders as well as in Penzeys Spices retail stores in 12 states: Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin.

The expanded recall comes weeks after Penzeys recalled packages of another paprika version, Hungarian Half-Sharp, and some of its Hungarian Sweet Paprika, because of possible salmonella contamination.

The product comes in 1.2-ounce plastic jars, 2.5-ounce glass jars and in 4-, 8- and 16-ounce bags. The recalled products are marked with the codes 47535, 47551, 47548, 47580 and 47519.

Consumers may return the recalled spice to the nearest Penzeys Spices store or contact the company at 1-800-741-7787 for refund information.
