LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Officials say some Serrano peppers distributed by Meijer stores in Michigan are potentially contaminated with salmonella.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development on Tuesday issued a consumer advisory for the peppers, which were supplied by Bailey Farms of Oxford, North Carolina. Michigan says no illnesses have been reported to date.

An infection can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps after exposure.

The peppers were sold from Oct. 14-19. They were shipped in Bailey Farms labeled boxes with the lot code 33714 and 1460410. A random sample was taken by the Michigan agriculture department on Oct. 13 was confirmed to test positive on Oct. 18.

Consumers who have purchased Serrano peppers involved in the advisory are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
