Cilantro possibly contaminated

AURORA (AP) – Health officials are informing the public that an Ohio-based grower has voluntarily recalled 465 boxes of cilantro because of possible contamination.

The product was shipped to retail stores in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio earlier this month. Buurma Farms Inc. is recalling the cilantro because it could be contaminated with Listeria bacteria, an organism that can cause serious illness.

The cilantro was distributed through Meijer and Ben B Schwartz and Sons in Michigan the week of Aug. 5 and could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The product has a Buurma Farms twist-tie on it.

The Food and Drug Administration has a list of stores that may have received the product on its website at www.fda.gov.

Customers may contact Buurma Farms at 419-935-6411 during regular business hours.
