Jackson, WY (AP) - Teton County officials are warning that organic black peppercorns sold at a Jackson grocery store could be contaminated with salmonella.

County spokeswoman Charlotte Reynolds said Tuesday that Jackson Whole Grocer has pulled the peppercorns made by Frontier Natural Products Co-op. She's asking anyone who bought the peppercorns in 2.12-ounce jars with a lot number 3288 printed on the bottom to return the product to the store, which also sold the peppercorns in bulk.

On Friday, Frontier voluntarily recalled several products manufactured with the peppercorns.

Salmonella poisoning can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections.
