Nov 2, 2012 at 9:30 am

What's this? A recall for potential salmonella contamination that doesn't involve peanuts or peanut butter?

Excuse us for a moment while we try to remember how to handle this.

Bolthouse Farms has announced a voluntary recall of sixteen-ounce bags of Bolthouse Farms Carrot Chips for possible salmonella contamination.

According to the company, there have been no reports of any illnesses connected to the product. However, a health official in North Carolina, to quote the recall announcement, "detected the possibility of salmonella in the single16-ounce bag that was tested."

The recalled packages were distributed nationwide and in Canada. The recall applies only to sixteen-ounce bags of the carrot chups with the following information printed on the front of the package:

- a "Best If Used By" date of November 12, 2012, and the codes 04 T XXXX, BF 212 J11 and UPC 71464 17209

- a "Best If Used By" date of November 13, 2012, and the codes 04T XXXX, BF 212 J 12 and UPC 71464 17209
