Sunsprout Natural Foods has expanded its voluntary recall on certain lots of Sunsprout and SproutsAlive brand alfalfa sprouts because of possible Salmonella contamination.

On June 12, the Brantford, Ontario, Canada, firm said the product was distributed only within the Ontario province.

The updated recall, issued June 14, now involves product that may have been distributed nationally to retailers within Canada, including Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Ontario.

No illnesses have been reported.

The voluntary recall is being monitored by the agency.
