What’s the Problem?

This recall affects Wild Harvest Organic Fresh Basil products sold in .25oz, .75oz, 2oz, and 4oz plastic clamshell containers (UPCs: 0071153550450, 0071153550322, 0071153550762, 0071153550323), according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) [1]. The recalled basil can be identified by a white sticker with black ink on the back of the container stating: “Product of Colombia” and “112.”

The problem was found when routine testing identified the presence of Cyclospora cayetanensis in samples of Wild Harvest Organic Fresh Basil taken by the FDA. Affected products were distributed to grocery stores in Minnesota, the agency said.

If you purchased any Wild Harvest Basil that is affected by this recall, you should discard it immediately in an appropriate waste container. Anyone concerned about a food-borne illness should consult their medical provider. This recall began on May 11, 2020.
