The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Green Life Farms, based in Lake Worth, Florida, is voluntarily recalling one lot of 4-ounce containers of baby arugula because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella. The presence of salmonella was found during routine testing in a single harvest of the greens. No illnesses have been reported to date.

How to Identify the Recalled Baby Arugula

The recalled baby arugula was sold at select Publix locations from 5/31/24 with a sell-by date of 6/15/24. The recall applies only to products marked with Lot #LW15124 in a 4-ounce, clear plastic package marked with the lot code stamped on the top.

Publix has stores in eight states, including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
