Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Hold the garni: parsley, alfalfa sprouts, cilantro food recall

Food recall: parsley, cilantro, alfalfa sprouts

Cilantro is not exactly garni. Cilantro is often used in the condiment — salsa but parsley is put on the plate for color  and alfalfa sprouts are often added to the plate (maybe to make it look fuller) or worse to the sandwich. I usually remove. Alfalfa sprouts get in the crevices of my teeth. That’s probably more than you wanted to know.

Cilantro and parsley are being recalled because of possible salmonella invasion. The Texas distributor is recalling 7,000 cases of parsley and cilantro because salmonella was found in Canada and Michigan. This recall affects Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

Tiny Greens Organic Farm’s Alfalfa Sprouts and Spicy Sprouts have been preliminarily linked to a multistate outbreak of salmonella infections. The sprouts were distributed to Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri and may also have been distributed to other Midwestern states. Approximately half of the illnesses occurred in Illinois, where nearly all of the ill individuals ate sandwiches containing sprouts at various Jimmy John’s outlets.
