Chia Powder Linked to Salmonella Illness, CDC Says

A Salmonella outbreak that includes at least 21 cases in the U.S. and another 34 in Canada has triggered a number of recalls for products that are potentially contaminated. If a chia powder product you have purchased is part of the recall, do not use it.

The CDC issued a warning Friday to consumers who may use chia powder, which is made from ground dried chia seeds and is often added to smoothies and other foods.

The recalled brands include Organic Traditions, Green Smoothie Girl, Navitas Naturals and Williams-Sonoma.

Twenty-one people in 12 states from New York to California have salmonella illnesses linked to the chia powder, the CDC said.

Canada is also investigating illnesses related to the outbreak.

The CDC said chia powder can have a long shelf life, so people should check to see if they have the recalled products in their homes.
