New York Satur Farms Recalls Salmonella-tainted Cilantro

Screen shot 2011-04-29 at 6.46.38 PM.pngSatur Farms of Cutchogue, NY is recalling 88.5 pounds of Satur Farms Cilantro, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The Satur Farms Cilantro was distributed in New York City and Long Island, New York.

The Cilantro in question was distributed to food service customers in 1/2 LB. and 1 LB. bulk bags which contained a small white stick-on label with four digit number lot number 6361.
