Shenandoah Growers, Inc has issued a voluntary recall on a limited number of their banded, fresh-cut, packaged organic basil - sold in clamshells in the produce department of grocery stores in  variety of states - including Minnesota and Wisconsin. The risk is with the potential for health problems related to Cyclospora contamination.

According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, the voluntary recall is limited right now to four distinct lot codes.  The brand names in question alternate between being labeled as Shenandoah Growers by That's Tasty, Simple Truth, or That's Tasty.

The FDA details that Cyclosporiasis is "an intestinal infection caused by the Cyclospora parasite."  Common symptoms include:

  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Watery diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Body aches
  • Fatigue

Treatment for Cyclosporiasis is with antibiotics.  At this point, there have been no known reports of medical issues associated with this recall.  The recall notification is being issued due to a single instance in which a sample of bulk product was pulled at the port of entry in Miami and tested by the FDA as part of their routine inspections.
