Producers in Detroit, Quebec and Texas have recently recalled several of their produce products for possible salmonella contamination. The defective food products are primarily cilantro and curly parsley. The recalls come after 94 people reported becoming sick from salmonella contaminated sprouts used in Jimmy John's Gourment Sandwhich restaurants in 16 states. The contaminated sprouts came from the Tiny Greens Organic Farm in Urbana, Illinois.
For most people, salmonella contamination causes only minor stomach and digestive problems and requires no treatment. However, in children and the elderly, salmonella can be much more serious and sometimes fatal. Officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that anyone who has purchased a recalled product throw it out immediately.
