With one Salmonella outbreak in the works currently, potentially linked to alfalfa sprouts and Jimmy John’s gourmet sandwich shops, now an expanded recall has been issued by J&D Produce due to possible Salmonella. J&D, a Texas produce manufacturer, is expanding their recall to include an additional 19 produce items that may be contaminated with Salmonella in addition to the initially recalled cilantro and parsley.
At first, only cilantro and parsley were recalled over Salmonella concerns. Now, the additional items are being recalled due to the possibility that they contaminated with Salmonella along the processing line.
According to the new reports, the first recall includes 2,498 cases of parsley that were distributed to the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario and the U.S. states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin. The Salmonella recalls also includes 4,411 cases of cilantro which were distributed to Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin as well as Quebec and Ontario.
Additional information about the items included in the expanded Salmonella recall is forthcoming. New sources are reporting that J&D’s website will provide additional information regarding Salmonella concerns. Stay tuned.
