The products recalled were Bunny Luv Organic Cut and Peeled Baby Carrots, Bunny Luv Organic Premium Petite Carrots, Cal-Organic Organic Petite Carrots, Grimmway Farms Shredded Carrots, O Organics Organic Peeled Baby-Cut Carrots, and O Organics Organic Baby Rainbow Carrots.

"The health of our customers and the integrity of our products are our highest priorities, and we will continue to monitor and communicate as additional information is available."
They stated, "The products listed in the table below were shipped directly to retailers throughout the United States."
Their press release adds that in addition to the recalled products listed on this chart, "the company recalled certain shredded carrots and chopped (chunk) carrots that were sold to food manufacturers and food service distributors.

Grimmway Farms is voluntarily recalling select carrot products for possible salmonella contamination.
According to the recall notice posted on the Food and Drug Administration website, six products are part of the recall under the brand names of Bunny Luv, Cal-Organic, O Organics and Grimmway Farms.
The company, which is based in Bakersfield, California, said no illnesses have been linked to the recall to date.
Most people infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps six hours to six days after being exposed to the bacteria, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment.
A list of stores that sold the recalled carrots was unavailable.
Dana Brennan, Grimmway vice president of government and public affairs, said in a statement to USA TODAY that the company doesn't distribute directly to stores but to distribution centers.
"For that reason and out of an abundance of caution, we are making this a nationwide recall," Brennan said.
In a statement, Grimmway Farms President and CEO Jeff Huckaby said the recall was initiated as a result of a routine, internal company test.
In addition to the recalled items sold in stores, the company says it has “recalled certain shredded carrots and chopped (chunk) carrots that were sold to food manufacturers and food service distributors.”
Consumers who have the recalled product should not consume it and should destroy or discard it. For more information, call 1-800-301-3101, weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET.
According to the company, all of the recalled products have a 9-character lot code beginning with 195, 196 or 197 and ending in BF or SP printed on the bag.

According to the FDA, salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Healthy people infected with salmonella often experience diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Those infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.
In rare circumstances, salmonella infection can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis.
