Taco seasoning sold at Walmart, H-E-B recalled over salmonella contamination

(KWCH) Great Value and H-E-B taco seasoning mix has been recalled over concerns of salmonella contamination.

Williams Foods LLC is voluntarily recalling the products because they contain cumin spice involved in a recall initiated by their supplier, Mincing Spice Co.

Mincing issued the recall for a specific lot of cumin they produced because a sample from that lot was tested by one of Mincing's customers and was found to be potentially contaminated with Salmonella. A portion of the lot recalled by Mincing was supplied to Williams Foods, LLC.
