Canada Herb recalls culantro over possible salmonella contamination

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has announced a recall of a specialty herb used in Vietnamese and other southeast Asian cuisine.
Canada Herb is recalling its culantro from the marketplace over possible salmonella contamination.

The recall applies to all packages sold up to and including Friday, November 9.
The CFIA says the product may have been sold in clear plastic bags bearing the name Canada Herb, or repackaged and sold without a label or coding.
No illnesses have been reported, but the agency is advising anyone who may have purchased the product to throw it out.

Culantro, also known as Ngo Gai, is part of the same family as the similarly named cilantro, although it has a stronger flavour.
