Living Foods Inc. is recalling packages of alfalfa sprouts distributed throughout Michigan because they could be contaminated with salmonella, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

No one has reported getting sick from the sprouts, the FDA said. The Ionia, Mich., company issued the recall after a package of the alfalfa sprouts tested positive for salmonella, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal, infections in young children, the frail or people with weakened immune systems. Even healthy people infected with salmonella can have a fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and stomach pain.
