CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - State agricultural officials are warning consumers about a salsa recall in West Virginia and 10 other states due to possible salmonella contamination.

Club Chef LLC is recalling its salsa products sold under the Private Selection brand name in a 12-ounce package and under the Heinen's brand name in a 16-ounce package.

Also recalled are 5-pound trays sold through food service distributors.

Agriculture Commissioner Gus Douglass says the products should be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund. They have the use-by date of March 27, 2012.

No illnesses have been reported. Douglass says the presence of salmonella was detected in a case of hot peppers used as one of the salsa's ingredients.

Consumers can call (859) 578-3143 during business hours on weekdays for more information.
