No salmonella found in tests at N. Idaho sprouts producer

Tests at a North Idaho sprouts plant failed to turn up traces of salmonella after the government in June linked an outbreak of food-borne salmonella poisoning to two types of sprouts from the business.

Nadine Scharf, owner of Evergreen Fresh Produce in Moyie Springs, says her company is on the verge of collapse after customers stopped filling orders in the weeks following the government action.

Scharf said she complied with a request by officials to voluntarily recall alfalfa sprouts and a spicy sprouts mix.

Since then, she has laid off 10 of her 14 workers and sold three vehicles to raise cash to pay her bills, she said.

“We are about down to nothing,” she said of her losses in recent weeks.
