FDA issues recall for 2 types of coriander due to salmonella

Nearly 800 bottles of Olde Thompson (626 bottles) and Sun Harvest (150 bottles) ground coriander have been recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration due to salmonella concerns. It’s being reported that a “routine sampling of raw materials” is what led to the recall.

Salmonella exposure can lead to salmonellosis. Salmonellosis has been linked to everything from abdominal cramps and diarrhea to endocarditis (inflammation of the heart’s lining). Typically the symptoms aren’t serious for healthy adults. The young, elderly, and those with compromised immune systems though could experience a much more serious reaction.

The recalled coriander was distributed in 6 states across the country between May 26 and June 4, 2021. Fortunately, so far no illnesses have been reported related to the recall. If you’re in possession of these recalled products, you should dispose of them or return them to your retailer for a refund.
