Cilantro Recall in 7 States, including Massachusetts

Salmonella-contaminated Cilantro Recalled

Salmonella may contaminate 6,141 cartons of cilantro that was distributed in 7 states.  This cilantro is being voluntarily recalled by a California food company.

Pacific Cilantro, based in Salinas, announced that a sample of their herbs was found to be contaminated with salmonella by the Food and Drug Association (FDA).

While no illnesses have been reported, the cilantro is being recalled as a precaution.

Also known as coriander, the cilantro was distributed in California, Arizona, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Indiana, South Carolina, and Missouri through a number of retailers.

If you purchased cilantro after November 16 and before December 10, you are advised to return the herb.

The cilantro was grown in the Phoenix area by Salt River Farming.  Each bunch of recalled cilantro has “Pacific” on the twist tie and carries the UPC code 33383 80104.

Salmonella can cause serious or even fatal illness in people with compromised immune systems, such as children and the elderly.
