Publix has recalled four store brand seasoning mixes following concerns the packages could be contaminated with salmonella.

The store, which operates more than 1,000 stores across the Southeast, has recalled its 0.75-ounce packs of the Publix Mushroom Gravy Mix with the UPC code 41415-03308, the 1-ounce packs of Publix Au Jus Gravy Mix with the UPC code 41415-04208, the 1-ounce packs of Publix Meatloaf Seasoning with the UPC code 41415-03408 and the 1.45-ounce packs of Publix Beef Flavored Stew Mix with the UPC code 41415-03608.

The brands have been taken off the shelves and customers who have purchased any of the packs are asked to return them to Publix for a full refund.

Although there have been no cases of illness reported from the packs, salmonella contamination can cause serious infections that can sometimes be fatal.

Publix operates six stores in Shelby County, including businesses in Alabaster, Pelham, Helena, Hoover and North Shelby. The company is currently building stores in Calera and Chelsea.
