Earlier this week, Texas food producer J&D Produce, Inc. joined several other producers that have recently recalled produce for possible salmonella contamination. J&D primarily recalled their Little Bear label cilantro and curly parsley that was distributed to retailers in Wisconsin and several other states across the country.
No consumers of the recalled J&D products have reported becoming ill from salmonella contamination but the company said they wanted to be cautious after salmonella was found in other locations. For example, the Tiny Green Organic Farm in Urbana, Illinois recently received 94 reports of people in 16 states becoming sick after consuming their sprouts used in Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwich restaurants.
Although for many people consuming salmonella contaminated products results in minor stomach problems that usually do not require treatment, in the elderly and in young children salmonella can pose serious, and sometime fatal, health risks. Officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urge consumers that have bought a recalled product to throw it out immediately.
