MINNEAPOLIS (WTAQ) - Fresh cilantro produce sold in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan has been found to have possible salmonella contamination.
Minnesota’s agriculture department found a potentially fatal micro-organism in the cilantro during a routine test.
The produce was sold in bunches, and was shipped to stores in the 3 states from July 26th through Monday.
A dozen stores in Wisconsin received the contaminated cilantro. They’re located along a path from Hudson to Sturgeon Bay.
All the stores are listed on the Minnesota Department of Agriculture’s Web site. No illnesses have been confirmed from the product.
Customers are asked to either throw out the cilantro, or return it to the stores where they bought it.
Minnesota officials say they’re working with federal and California officials to determine the source of the contamination.
