Salmonella concerns have caused a recall of taco seasoning mixes that were sold at Walmart.

Williams Foods LLC initiated the voluntary and precautionary recall of Great Value Mild Taco Seasoning Mix and H-E-B Taco Seasoning Mix Reduced Sodium. The company said the items contain cumin spice involved in another recall that was announced by supplier Mincing Spice Co. The cumin recall was issued because a sample suggested a lot may have been contaminated with salmonella.

So far, no customer complaints or cases of salmonellosis had been reported in connection with the taco seasoning products. But, this recall is being issued just in case. People infected with salmonella could experience fevers, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain.
