The FDA announced several days ago that Frontera Produce of Texas was recalling cilantro due to potential contamination with Salmonella. Neither the FDA nor Frontera, however, provided the identities of the retailers where the cilantro in question had been sold. Thankfully, state health officials in Colorado have identifed a set of Wal-Mart stores that are implicated, according to the Colorado AP. It appears that Frontera has also now confirmed that the cilantro was sold at Wal-Mart stores in the Alamosa, Trinidad, La Junta, Cortez, and Durango areas. Further:
State health official say
people who bought the cilantro between July 20 and July 27 should check their
refrigerators and toss it or return it.
Interestingly, Wal-Mart previously claimed that Frontera was the supplier of jalapeno peppers to the Cortez, Colorado Wal-Mart that later tested positive for Salmonella Saint Paul in connection with a 2008 outbreak that sickened over 1,000 indiviudals.
