Specialty Farms is recalling several lines of alfalfa sprout products because they could be contaminated with the dangerous organism Listeria, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

This is the second round of recalls of sprouts from Specialty Farms in a week. Last week, the Bridgeport, Conn.-based grower issued a warning involving products with "Best by" dates prior to July 27. The latest announcement includes dates of Aug. 1 and Aug. 3.

The sprouts were sold at supermarkets throughout the Northeast including Stop & Shop and Price Chopper. Stop & Shop sold the sprouts under the Natures Promise brand. The FDA said the sprouts were distributed to New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont and Pennsylvania.
