Breaking News: Yet another cilantro recall has been initiated after a Bay Area grower was found to contain Salmonella bacteria. Consumers advised to discard contaminated cilantro immediately and seek medical attention if symptoms appear.
What’s the problem?
February 1, 2011 – Sabor Farms, LLC. of Salinas, CA is recalling fresh cilantro because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. The cilantro was on store shelves in multiple states beginning January 14 and likely sold or removed from sale before January 28, 2011. Consumers should be aware that the cilantro bunches do not contain identifying lot codes. Each bunch is sold with a distinctive, but general twist-tie.
How do I know if I have Salmonella food poisoning?
You may have contracted Salmonella food poisoning (Salmonellosis) if you are experiencing any or all of the following side effects:
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Stomach cramps
- Nausea and vomiting
- Blood in the feces
In the case of less serious infections there are fewer symptoms – usually only diarrhea two or three times a day for a couple of days. Most mild Salmonellosis infections clear up in four to seven days without requiring any treatment other than rest and plenty of fluids.
