Well considering 2010 was a disastrous year for the food industry in the realm of recalls, I was hoping 2011 would get off to a much better, and healthier, start. That optimism lasted seven days because it looks like it’s business as usual.

The Boncheff Greenhouses, Inc. of Toronto, Ontario, a Canadian herb distribution company, has issued a warning about several batches of products sold in New York and Pennsylvania due to possible Salmonella contamination.

The Company has recalled cilantro, curly parsley and Italian parsley that was distributed to various retailers in New York state and Pennsylvania and sold between Dec. 14 and Dec. 28, 2010.

Thankfully there have been no illnesses reported to date.

This recall is related to the voluntary recall from J & D Produce Edinburg, TX, which packs under the Little Bear Brand. The herbs were shipped on Dec 6, 2010 to Boncheff Greenhouses, where they were repacked and distributed.

The items were sold under the following labels:

Wegmans Food Markets (sold in two stores in Erie, PA and in New York state stores except Corning, Elmira, Ithaca, and Johnson City)

Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Cilantro (UPC: 6-25647-80104), Curly Parsley (UPC: 6-25647-80110), and Italian Parsley (UPC: 6-25647-80125) sold in 0.25 ounce poly sleeves.

Boncheff Brand (Italian Parsley Lot code 1002387) sold in five stores: Budwey Kenmore in Buffalo, NY; Budwey Division Street North in Tonawanda, NY; Wades Market in Farmington, NY; Cuba Giant Food Market in Wellsville, NY; and Hegedorn's in Webster, NY.
