Walmart chia seeds sold nationwide recalled Owing to salmonella

Recently, a food supplier based in Los Angeles known as The Natural Sourcing International also known as NSI has announced a recall with regard to some of the packets of chia seeds that are being made available to the public at Walmart. 

The voluntary recall was brought up in a notice issued by the FDA, which is also known as the Food and Drug Administration. This suggests that the chia seeds are not fit for consumption, lack some quality standards, and are polluted with Salmonella. 

The recently issued recall concerns the 32-ounce packets of Great Value Organic Black Chia seeds that Walmart is selling to consumers. The American multinational retail corporation founded its Great Value brand in 1993 to provide middle-class customers with more affordable options for high-end products. 

So, check the product’s back and front carefully if you are someone who has bought the above-mentioned Black chia seeds pouches with the following details:

  • UPC: 078742300665
  • Expiration Date: October 30, 2026
  • Lot Code: 24095 C018
  • Size: 32 oz
  • Name: Great Value Organic Black Chia Seeds

If your chia seed packet has all the details mentioned above, it is advised that you throw them away and not use them, as this can lead to illness. 

However, do not dispose of the payment receipt, as the Los Angeles food supplier (NSI) will replace these products only if you have the receipt in your hands. The receipts will be recorded as proof of payment. Natural Sourcing International has recently emphasized that the contaminated packets of chia seeds were given to Walmart’s retail stores across the nation. 

They have also stated that Salmonella is not a joke as it can lead to some severe and sometimes even life-threatening infections and allergies, especially in children of young age, people with weak immune systems, and senior citizens. 

However, people who catch this infection but are healthy might experience symptoms such as nausea, fever, vomiting, indigestion, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. After getting the infection, the symptoms usually start to show up between 6 hours to 6 days, and they can stay up to 4 to 7 days.

So far, since the recall was issued, no cases or infections related to the contamination have been reported to the hospitals, but it is very important to stay informed and take precautions. 

In any case, after eating the products, if you start experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above, it is advised to reach out to your nearby doctor and get treated because it might not be a deadly infection but Salmonella requires proper hospitalization and care.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have revealed that every year, America records a total of 1.35 million infections from Salmonella, around 420 deaths, and approximately 26,500 hospitalizations. The main origination of this infection is Food. 

NSI has also stated that anyone who has these products should immediately dispose of them and contact the food supplier regarding their replacement. If you want to reach out to them, then give them a call between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, at 818-405-9705, or you can just drop an email at
