SILVER SPRING, Md. (WTVA) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says a voluntary recall has been issued by Fronteir Natural Products Co-op for possible Salmonella contamination to some of its products.

Officials say the company's organic black peppercorn tested negative for Salmonella initially but a small risk may still be present after a random test resulted in a positive reading.

No illnesses have been reported at this time, but the company is taking precautionary measures.

Consumers should not consume these products.

Those who contract Salmonella may experience symptoms including fever, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In some cases, Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.

The recalled products were sold in all 50 states.

Those with questions about replacements or reimbursement can call Frontier at 1-800-669-3275 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central time.
