One Lot Of Cilantro Recalled For Contamination

khts_recallsPablo’s Produce, Inc. of Oxnard is voluntarily recalling one lot of cilantro because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The company is working with Health officials to inform consumers of this recall, and no illnesses have been reported to date.

 

Salmonella is 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 results in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The recalled Cilantro was bundled with white twist ties with black lettering spelling the word “Cilantro” and  UPC # 03383801049. The twist tie also has the words “Pablo’s Produce of USA” in red and green writing. The cilantro was available for sale from November 24, 2010 through December 2, 2010.

The recall involves only one lot of cilantro and does not involve any other cilantro sold before or after the dates listed above or any other products distributed by Pablo’s Produce. This contamination was detected in a routine surveillance sample at a produce distributor in California. Consumers who are uncertain if they have any of the recalled cilantro, are urged to discard or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Pablo’s Produce, Inc. continues to strive to keep food safety at the foremost priority.
Our commitment is the same today as it was 38 years ago, to provide quality products to our customers.
