Fresco Green Farms of California is recalling 1,643 cases of cilantro because it may be contaminated with Salmonella. The herb was sold in California and Minnesota from July 19, 2012 to August 6, 2012. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the consumption of this product. We’re not sure if this recall is tied to the August 10, 2012 recall of cilantro sold in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
The cilantro is sold in bunches, fastened with a brown rubber band. Each bunch is 10 inches long and 1-1/4 inches in width. There are no identifying labels or lot numbers on the product. The cilantro was shipped in cases labeled “Fresco Green Farms Inc., Hemet, CA. Produce of USA cilantro 2.5 dz”. Anyone who purchased cilantro should contact the place of purchase to see if the store received any of the recalled herb.
The USDA found the Salmonella on the cilantro. The herb that was harvested from July 18, 2012 to July 27, 2012 has the potential to be contaminated. For questions, call the company at 562-205-7673 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm PST.
