What’s the problem?
April 20, 2011 – This week, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Satur Farms of Cutchogue, NY is currently recalling 138 pounds of Satur Farms Cilantro, because it has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella bacteria. The products in question were distributed in 1/2 lb. and 1 lb. bulk bags with Lot Number 6347 to six customers in New York City and Long Island, New York. None of the recalled cilantro was shipped to retail markets. Food service customers who have purchased cilantro from the lot in question are urged to return it to Satur Farms.
One of the most common foodborne illnesses, salmonella food poisoning (salmonellosis) occurs when food contaminated by salmonella bacteria is ingested. The majority of individuals infected with salmonellosis develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12-72 hours after infection. Over the past several years, there has been an increase in the number of salmonella food poisoning cases reported around the country. In the United States, salmonellosis accounts for over 30% of food poisoning-related fatalities.
