Cilantro from Salinas has been recalled over fear of salmonella and a central California company selling the fresh herb has identified four of its brands in the multi-state take back, reports the West Ranch Beacon.

Sabor Farms in Salinas announced Friday that cilantro sold between Jan. 14 and Jan. 28 under the labels Nature's Reward, Ocean Mist, Tanimura & Antle and Queen Victoria may have been tainted with salmonella.

The products made it to store shelves in California and several other states according to Sabor Farms. The contamination was detected during a routine surveillance sample at its Salinas facility, notes the company. No illnesses have been reported.
