Hopkins-based United Natural Foods Inc. has recalled organic basil from its Wild Harvest line over contamination concerns.
The Wild Harvest Organic Fresh Basil products were sold at Minnesota retailers between April 18 and May 8.
The recall includes products sold in .25oz, .75oz, 2oz, and 4oz plastic clam shell containers (UPCs: 0071153550450, 0071153550322, 0071153550762, 0071153550323).
The product can be identified via a white sticker with black ink on the back of the container stating: “Product of Colombia” and “112.”
During a routine sampling, workers found the microscopic parasite cyclospora cayetanensis, which can cause an intestinal illness called cyclosporiasis.
No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported. Symptoms include loss of appetite, weight loss, nausea, diarrhea and fatigue.
The illness is usually not life-threatening, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Wild Harvest products are sold at many Minnesota stores, including Cub Foods, Kowalski's, Jerry's Foods, and Mills Fleet Farm.
