Cilantro Recalled Due to Potential Salmonella Contamination

By Brianne Moore

Pacific International Marketing, in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration and California Department of Public Health, has issued a recall of more than 6,000 cartons of cilantro due to potential salmonella contamination. The recalled cartons were distributed in California, Arizona, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Indiana, South Carolina and Missouri.

No illnesses have been reported to date, but salmonella can cause serious, sometimes fatal infections in the elderly, very young children and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with salmonella may experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Click here to learn more.

Customers who purchased cilantro with “Pacific” on the twist tie and the UPC code 33383 80104 between November 16 and December 10 are advised to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. For more information on the recall, visit Pacific International.
