WILLARD, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Buurma Farms, Inc. is voluntarily recalling 465 boxes of cilantro lot #02D312A4 due to a possible listeria monocytogenes contamination, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms, such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

However, Buurma Farms, Inc. has not received any case of reported illness related to this product yet. 

The cilantro was sold to distributors in Michigan Aug. 3. The product was also shipped to other retail stores in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. The cilantro, which was distributed through Meijer and Ben B Schwartz and Sons in Michigan the week of Aug. 5-9, has a Buurma Farms twist tie on it.

DESCRIPTION: 
Cilantro, fresh, UPC #4889, Lot #02D312A4, GTIN: 0 33383 80104 9
Product is sold in 4 oz. bunches with a Product of USA Buurma Farms #4889 labeled twist tie

Consumers who may have purchased this product should return or dispose of the product.

Buurma Farms Inc. became aware of this issue after the Michigan Department of Agriculture conducted a routine test on a sample obtained at Ben B Schwartz and found the sample contained the bacteria.

The recall does not affect any other Buurma Farms produce products.

Upon learning of the potential contamination, Buurma Farms quickly alerted the retailer and wholesaler and requested they remove the produce from their shelves.

The source of the contamination is still under investigation.

To date, Buurma Farms has not been able to find any other evidence of contamination within their supply chain and is fully cooperating with the FDA's investigation.

Customers who have questions may contact Buurma Farms Inc. at 419-935-6411, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time.
