Parsley Recall: Potential Salmonella Contamination

More than 1,000 cases of parsley shipped to 10 different states have been recalled due to the risk of salmonella contamination and food poisoning.

The parsley recall affects cases of 60-count bunched parsley by Muranaka Farm, Inc. There were 1005 brown wax cartons of the fresh bunched parsley shipped to Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

Although there have been no illnesses or injuries reported in connection with the recall, consumption of parsley contaminated with salmonella bacteria could lead to cases of food poisoning, which could be serious or potentially life-threatening in some people.

Salmonella is a type of bacteria that attacks the gastrointestinal tract, causing mild to severe food poisoning infections. For most healthy adults the salmonella infection symptoms typically resolve after a few days or weeks, but young children, the elderly, and individuals with compromised immune systems have an increased risk of suffering severe food poisoning after ingesting the bacteria. If not properly treated, salmonella food poisoning can lead to hospitalization, dehydration or even death.

The recalled parsley cases have a parsley silhouette on the side of the case and a sticker with lot code 0023909. The company says that a trace program has allowed it to identify where all of the cases were shipped. The products are likely past their usable shelf life at this point, the company noted.
