Blue Diamond Growers is conducting a voluntary recall because routine testing performed under the direction of Blue Diamond indicated that low levels of gluten may be present in some of the product associated with these two lots. Blue Diamond exceeds all regulatory requirements by testing every batch of gluten-free products to ensure the highest quality products are provided to our values customers. This product is produced in a wheat-free facility, so the source of the gluten has not been determined at this time.

Natural Grocers and Sprouts have issued alerts.

The recall affects Blue Diamond Nut Thins Chia Seeds, 4.25 ounce box; UPC: 41570-10938; Best Before Date Aug. 6 or 7, 2015.

Also, on Sept. 13, Taylor Farms issued a recall for Expo Fresh Roma tomatoes it shipped to Costco locations in Los Angeles and Hawthorne, Calif; Tacoma and Lynnwood, Wash.; and Las Vegas, Nev. It involves only those tomatoes listed as packed on Sept. 5 or 6, 2014.

Included in the recall, however, is Sicilian Vegetable Salad sold at deli counters at Safeway, Vons, and Pavilions grocery stores in California, Nevada and Arizona, with use-by dates of Sept. 20 and 21, 2014. The kits are for the salads containing tomatoes.

Taylor Farms said the possible salmonella contamination was discovered during routine testing.
