6K cilantro cartons recalled for salmonella


Salinas-based Pacific Cilantro is recalled 6,141 cartons of cilantro in seven states. The cilantro, also known as coriander, was distributed in California, Arizona, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Indiana, South Carolina and Missouri through retailers.

The company said no one has gotten sick, but it is asking people to return any cilantro they bought between Nov. 16 and Dec. 10.

The bunches being recalled have "Pacific" on the twist tie, and the UPC code 33383 80104.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal illness in children, the elderly, or those with compromised immune systems.
