(WBTW) — McCormick & Company has issued a voluntary recall of three products over possible salmonella contamination.

The recall is for McCormick Perfect Pinch Italian Seasoning, McCormick Culinary Italian Seasoning and Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Ranch Seasoning, the company announced Tuesday.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, older adults and people with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with the organism often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, salmonella can get into the bloodstream and cause more severe illnesses.

No illnesses have been reported.

The Food and Drug Administration brought the potential risk to McCormick’s attention during routine testing. The recall affects products shipped from June 20 to July 21 to 32 U.S. states, Bermuda and Canada.
