Produce recalled in U.S. and Canada for possible salmonella contamination

Posted under Uncategorized

Earlier this month, the Tiny Greens Organic Farm in Urbana, Illinois had a salmonella outbreak.  The farm's sprouts were used in Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwich restaurants across the country.  94 people reported becoming ill from consuming the sprouts on Jimmy John's sandwiches in 16 different states.

This week, J&D Produce, Inc., based in Texas, recalled several of their products after reports of salmonella outbreaks in Detroit and Quebec.  The producer says that they have had no reports of consumers becoming ill but wanted to be cautious after the other recalls.  The primary products being recalled are Little Bear label cilantro and curly parsley produced on November 30th and December 6th.  J&D's products are sold by retailers in Wisconsin and several other states.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urge all consumers that have purchased a recalled product to throw it out immediately.  Salmonella can pose serious health complications and can sometimes be fatal in young children and the elderly.
