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.
