Cilantro

Food, Sex and SalmonellaTwenty-three products that contain cilantro—including Trader Joe’s salad dressings and California Pizza Kitchen packaged salads—have been recalled because they may be contaminated with salmonella. 

Food packager Orval Kent has taken action because the 43,814 pounds of cilantro it purchased from EpicVeg, Inc., may be tainted with the bacterium. 

The affected products were distributed at retail stores nationwide. No illnesses have been reported to date. 

If you have purchased any of the following items, do not consume them. Return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or replacement. 

Recalled products

If you have additional questions, please contact Orval Kent at (800) 544-1246.
