The grocery chain said the product was being recalled from all stores. No illnesses have been reported.
Sprouts said the recall was enacted after a sample taken during routine testing by the Food and Drug Administration revealed the presence of salmonella in one lot of the product.
The product is sold in a 2.12-ounce, clear glass jar and with an expiration date of October 2016, Sprouts said. Each container is identified with a label showing the Sprouts company logo and the description “Organic Black Peppercorns.”
As a precaution, Sprouts is also recalling Frontier-branded organic whole black peppercorns sold in a 16-ounce container and Simply Organic-branded whole black peppercorns sold in a 2.65-ounce jar.
