In Canada three varieties are under recall: brocco sprouts, spicy sprouts and alfalfa sprouts. All of the recalled LifeForce brand sprouts distributed are in 3-ounce (85-gram) clamshells.

http://sproutalliance.org/news_release-102012.html "Alliance members are differentiating themselves from an industry plagued with preventable outbreaks." How exactly is this so called alliance and its members differentiating themselves? Who is to be held accountable? Sprouters Northwest? Life Force? Brocco Sprouts? Brassica Protection Products? All these company members seem to be interconnected. What seems apparent to me is that this "trade association" is all just some marketing scheme at the expense of the consumer. http://www.thepacker.com/commodity-vegetables/sprouts/Letter-Sprout-safety-issue-requires-industry-reinforcement-179664631.html "Through the alliance, we want to help educate foodservice and retail customers, as well as the end consumer, that a choice exists." I wonder if Steffanie Smith would like the opportunity to respond once again. Do your research people! Sarah
