Bass Pro Shops, Springfield, MO, is recalling one lot of Uncle Buck’s Beer Batter Mix Lightly-Seasoned because it has a black pepper ingredient — manufactured by the Mincing Overseas Spice Company — that may be contaminated with Salmonella.

The product was distributed nationwide at Bass Pro Shops stores, on basspro.com and at select retailers. The company requests that consumers with the product destroy it or return it to the nearest store for a full refund.
