Omya recalling food grade ground limestone

CINCINNATI –  Omya Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain lots of food grade ground limestone products processed at its Superior, Ariz., plant because of the possible presence of  salmonella.

The company said that there have been no reports of any illnesses or adverse health effects associated with any of Omya’s food grade ground limestone products.

The food grade ground limestone products were sold to distributors and/or manufacturers as ingredients for further processing in the U.S. The food grade products were not distributed for retail sale to consumers.

Although an investigation is still ongoing, Omya is recalling specific lots of Omya-Cal FG-4 AZ, Omya-Cal FG-10 AZ and Omya-Cal FG-15 AZ in the U.S. as a precaution.

The voluntary recall is being conducted in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
