PHOENIX (FOX 10) - A popular taco seasoning sold at Walmart has been voluntarily recalled due to it being potentially contaminated with Salmonella.
According to a press release, Williams Food, LLC issued a recall of the 1 oz. Great Value Mild Taco Seasoning Mix after Mincing Spice Co. discovered a test sample was possibly contaminated. As of the time of publication, there aren't any consumer complaints or reported cases of Salmonellosis.
