(UPDATED COVERAGE, Aug. 31) Ocean Mist Farms is voluntarily recalling its iceless green onions because of a positive test for salmonella on a supplier's product.

The Castroville, Calif.-based company announced the recall Aug. 28, after federal regulators confirmed a positive salmonella test on green onions from Circle Produce Co., Calexico, Calif. Circle Produce supplied Ocean Mist as well as several other shippers, according to a news release from Ocean Mist.

Green onions included in a recall from Steinbeck Country Produce were from the same lot as the Ocean Mist products, said Kori Tuggle, marketing manager.

Aug. 29, the company updated its recall information and announced 1,746 total were included, Tuggle said.

Ocean Mist also suspended shipments from Circle Produce for green onions, according to the release.

Green onion pack styles that were recalled include:

  • 4 x 12-count
  • 2 x 24-count
  • 36-count 5.5-ounce cello bag
  • 40-count 5.5-ounce cello bag

Affected production date codes include Aug. 3, Aug. 7, Aug. 8, Aug. 11 and Aug. 13, and the traceback code is 95ONCP7G. The code appears on a traceback sticker on each box.

There are no reported illnesses, according to the release, and Ocean Mist issued the recall immediately when the positive test results were shared.

"We quickly traced back the product using our tracking system and will work closely with our customers and officials," said Ed Boutonnet, president, in a news release.

Ocean Mist should still be able to supply green onions from its own growing and packing operations, the release stated.
